The Chapman farm, former home to nine generations of the Chapman family, consists of 31 acres of rolling fields and a pond. Area residents may be most familiar with the farm’s white farmhouse and huge red hay barn and milking shed, which are visible from Main Street. People will also remember the farm as the site of the Miles Memorial Hospital Rummage Sale for many years. When asked why the family decided to sell the farm to Inn Along the Way, family member John Gallagher said, “David Chapman had the opportunity to sell the property many times in the past for much greater sums, but David thought of his community as his home and could not see any outside commercial enterprise improving his community by developing his land. The family felt that Inn Along the Way will better this community, and that is what David and Madeline would have wanted were they still here.”
