Introduction to the Collection

Financial records of a small family dairy farm in Canaan, NH operated by the Webster family. The farm was located on US Route 4 between Switch and Roberts roads.

Introduction

The Webster farm, located in Canaan, NH, was founded in 1779 by Joseph Flint a merchant from Newburyport, MA and passed through two more hands by 1865 when George W. Davis purchased the farm. By the 1880's the farm was successfully operating as a dairy farm serving the Boston market through the nearby railroad. Around 1900 the farm house and buildings burned and was rebuilt. The farm was operated by Davis' decedents until 1995 when it was sold.
