Indian Camp Brook showing the Judge Stephen Longfellow Homestead. The rows of elms which border the farm were known as the "Longfellow Elms." They were planted in the early 1800s under Judge Longfellow's directions, and at his expense. He paid his hired men nine-pence above their wages for every tree which they would set out, outside of their working hours.
