It's been a long time, but isn't/wasn't that the Morrison farm?

This is the Fox Farm, Dyer Brook, Maine (Willard "Bill" Fox)

Beautiful place and very, very nice people. I picked potatoes there when I was in my teens..

must of took a lot of people and work to keep the farm going.

The Fox Farm was a great place to live. So much to learn and enjoy on this farm!

The Fox Farm was a great place to live.

Debbie, see the hole in the little barn wall, we put that there. That happened when we back the car door thru the wall. Took the driver's door off Mom and Dad's 1963 Chevy Bel-Air. The car is parked near the porch in this picture. Dad had the car fixed quickly but it was a year or so before repairs were made to the barn.

Yes I see the hole! The driving lesson was a big bang!

What a riot Debbie and David...I am so lucky to be Ruth's baby girl and be a part of this family. We had great parents with so much love around us. I close my eyes and see the image of Mt Katahdin out the picture window in the kitchen and just have this sigh of relief and feeling of being home. love you guys.

:D

I do I lived there the first 2yr's of my life. While my dad served his country. "GOD BLESS AMERICA" Oh I'm not a fox?
I'm a "HARDY" Richard Mom Edith Farther Dana Grandparents Ross @ vesper fox Come to think of it?
I guess I've got fox in me too? What-ch think. And I've got this to say. Even though I've only visited over the years.
I remember the Christmas's, And about all the other holidays. Right up to the day Grampy Fox passed away in "55"

And yes I loved that old farm too. It never should of been taken out of the "FOX" Name.

Love swing on the rope

Since we restored the house in 2007-8, we still refer to it as "The Fox Farm", and hope that we can keep this magnificent property in good shape. Thanks to the help of David Fox for information, and a lot of local craftsman, it is back to being "lived-in" again. Unfortunately we couldn't do much for the potato house, and it had to be taken down a couple of years ago, due to liabilities and the best interest of the town. No better views of Mount Katahdin or a beautiful sunset than from here. Taking the barn down only helped the panorama, I'd say! Another distinguishing natural feature is the way the wind blows up there. Comments anyone?!
