Deepwells Farm – Saint James, NY

On July 19, 2008 I visited the Suffolk County owned Deepwells Farm for the first time. The estate was built in 1845 and was renovated in 1924 as a Greek Revival Style home. The farm is open for special events, on this day a craft fair was going on.

The house is mostly empty on the inside, very few furnishings, but the rooms are generally in good shape- much restoration work has been done to the house.
