WINTER AT CASTLE HILL FARM
DURING THE YEARS IT WAS OWNED BY BEN AND JOSEFA MARKEWICH
Ben and Josefa Markewich owned Castle Hill Farm in West Windham. It was one of the largest farms in town, running along both sides of Castle Hill Road and up Mount Ephraim to where Heritage Hill and Bennington Roads are located today. They ran a successful dairy farm which at one time had more than 65 cows, during the 30’s and 40’s. Josefa is shown above with the cows in front of her house. Winter brought different chores to the farm, like cutting ice for the household refrigeration and milk.
