The Swendsen Farm is an imposing geographic landmark in Bethlehem and an important part of the town's farming history. Built by the Kasson family from Belfast, Ireland in 1750, it retains much of its original interior architectural detail: five fireplaces, extensive paneling, some wideboard floors, beaded and boxed beams. The original farm had well over 100± acres. In recent years most of the land was sold to the town for open space and continues to be farmed. The breathtaking views from the farmhouse are over the surrounding Swendsen Preserve and to the distant hills. The property includes a large barn, above-ground pool with deck, cabana, gazebo and a pond. The land is mostly open and ideal for horses. Farm markets, fine dining and hiking trails abound.
