Sarah Farmer was an advocate for peace in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Frank Hector Tompkins painted this portrait of Farmer and her dog, Barry, in 1891.
Farmer began summer programs in Eliot in 1894 for persons interested in the subjects of peace, religion, and philosophy. She eventually came to own the Green Acre property and bequeathed it to the Bahá’í Community in 1916.
