Before East-West Farm was located at the corner of West Beach Road and Route 1, the farm was situated opposite what is now Galapagos.  When Route 1 was widened in the early 40’s, the farmhouse was moved to it’s present location. 

A barn and chicken coop were built, and the farm was named  “East and West Farm”.  

The farm located in the 1930s opposite Wilcox Tavern
