It’s that time of year when the fall foliage is spectacular and families are posing for photos all over the community.  Just a reminder, residents and resident photographers are welcome to utilize the Community Farm buildings and grounds.  If you are planning a specific date and time, please feel free to call the HSTA Office just to make sure another resident hasn’t rented the facility for a special event. 

The Schick-Ostalosa Farmstead and surrounding grounds are open to the public on Saturdays, May – September from  12:30 - 4:30 pm.  Tours and photography (by residents and/or resident photographers) are by appointment ONLY.  Please contact the Dry Creek Historical Society for more information, schedule and permission.
