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.
