Skyline Farm

"Skyline Farm is a fabulous example of how historic preservation, land preservation, and adaptive reuse can come together to create a wonderful community resource." - Hillary Bassett; Executive Director of Greater Portland Landmarks

Skyline Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to transform Skyline Farm into a community resource as a living carriage museum with an antique carriage & sleigh collection, while also preserving the farm's open space and historic buildings for recreational and educational use. Skyline Farm is a community-based organization providing educational and recreational programs based on the role of horse-drawn transportation in the cultural, social and economic development of New England.
