In 1937 Ralph Borsodi, author, economist and philosopher, organized a group for the purchase of this 106-acre Dutch farm to be divided into leased acreage plots. This became the largest self-administered, back-to-the-land community in Rockland County for families seeking a do-it-yourself agrarian life style. The homesteads were built, in part, by the owners. The leased land later reverted to private ownership.
