For those interested in history, the farm is built around the remnants of an Iron Mining Boom Town rooted in America’s Industrial Revolution. Reed Island Iron Company started in 1882 and operated on the farm for 28 years by a proprietor that will captivate and inspire all. During your stay, you can learn how a mining industry, turned Iron Empire, turned vineyard and winery has evolved.
