Nancy and Bruce Buckley

    Owned for many years by the Robinson family and purchased by the Buckleys in 1985. This 155-acre property forms a major part of the ridgeline overlooking the village of Greensboro to the east. Its combination of open and forest land together with farm buildings contributes significantly to the town's rural character. In the 1890s Andrew Hill raised horses on the farm, which featured a half-mile track for sulky racing. Two of the horses he trained, Terrible Sid and Hanniker Girl, achieved notice in the National Trotting Association.

    The GLT purchased a conservation easement on the property in 1995. Over half the cost was raised by sale of a 0.37-acre piece of shorefront, now owned by John Downing, which was generously donated by Joan and Jenneke Barton.
