Osborn-Clark Farm: Modern renovations and updates are taking place throughout this colonial farmhouse.

Additions in the early 20th century created the current four-bedroom, 4,124 square foot residence. Three stairs lead to three separate bedrooms upstairs, and the center of the house is the large kitchen and dining area downstairs.

Many original details remain, including large pine floors, exposed beams and an open fireplace. The 1.29 acre property is lined with stone walls and within walking distance to downtown and the library.
