Captain Pollard's Flintlock Farm is an authentic 225+ year old colonial-era New England plantation (1782) that was built by Captain Thaddeus Pollard; a minuteman and soldier in the American Revolution. The farm is located in the hamlet of Still River which is found at the southern end of the town of Harvard (in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA). The farm is now being restored to reflect the character of the site's post revolutionary plantation heritage.
Hold your educational-oriented agritourism event at our site. We are looking forward to seeing how we can help you bring off a successful event.
Captain Pollard's Flintlock Farm has been nominated for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. It comprises the Captain Pollard dwelling house, an 1830’s era double English barn, the fourth oldest American Sycamore in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (The Whipping Tree) and surrounding fields and pastures of nearly 20 acres. This heritage has prompted our membership in ALHFAM; The Association for Living History Farm and Agricultural Museums. We are the official home of The Lost Arts Collaborative, an emerging charitable organization that will transition us from a for-profit farm business to a non-profit educational-oriented one that is best described as a teaching farm.
