Farm River Estuary With a Look Into the Salt Marsh
Backstory and Context
The Farm River has been used for navigation by a fertilizer factory, stone quarry, paper mill, saloon, salt hay harvesters, fisherman and boating enthusiasts for centuries. During colonial times, the northern sections of this river was home to a swine farm, Beacon Hill, the peak of the wooded area directly behind you, was used as a lighthouse as well as a quarry. Barges filled with the trap rock harvested from the quarry behind navigated these waters downstream to the Long Island Sound.
