    The Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm is a family-friendly site with activities for visitors of all ages. It features an imposing architectural jewel, a late seventeenth-century major house built as the country seat of wealthy Newburyport merchants. It is also a foster farm in partnership with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, with farm animals that may be visited year round.

    Learn about life on a farm over the centuries through hands-on activities. Pump water from the well outside the kitchen or sit in a horsehair-covered rocking chair and look through a stereo-viewer in the nineteenth-century parlor. Become an archaeologist as you piece “artifacts” together. Explore nature trails, and enjoy a picnic under the ancient maple trees. The farm is open on a drop-in basis. Architectural tours are available at all five Newbury region properties. For more details call (978) 462-2634.

    Nature walks, family events, and lectures are held at the farm year round.

    The Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm visitor center houses a museum gift shop offering books, gifts and local products. The visitor center also features an orientation exhibition, changing exhibition space, and fully-equipped programming space which is available for community use with advance notice. Please call for more information.
