The Baker family operated a small farm here through the mid-20th century. Polly and Talbot Baker had moved to Millis in 1939 and were soon growing crops and raising livestock. In the 1970s, Polly Baker began her farsighted vision for protecting much of the landscape by placing a conservation restriction on it. Upon Mrs. Baker’s death in 2002 at the age of 94, the property, its two residences, and numerous outbuildings were generously donated to The Trustees.
