About The Owner
My family has summered on North Haven since 1914. My grandfather was a sculpter and knew Frank Benson, the owner of Wooster Farm from 1905 to 1951. I grew up playing tennis on the clay court.
The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2011
Why The Owner chose North Haven Island
As a tribute to Frank Benson and to my father and grandfather, I bought Wooster Farm in 2011 and have renovated it and preserved it in its original condition and have opened it up to thousands of art lovers who have enjoyed seeing where Mr. Benson painted and etched.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Wooster Farm is an enchanted place where people make happy memories; there have been a lot of weddings and dances in the Barn and families have had fun playing on the tennis court and baseball in the front lawn and walking the pristine beaches nearby.
