In 1636, Samuel Appleton established the farm, growing vegetables, corn and hay. Later generations of Appletons expanded into timber, beef, and dairy production, using progressive farming techniques beginning in 1868. By the late 19th century, the farm was primarily a summer country estate, complete with foxhunts and steeplechases, stone pinnacles from the Gore Hall Library at Harvard and Grass Rides – five miles of trails and tree-lined grass avenues built for horseback and carriage driving.
