Owned and maintained by Freeport Historical Society, this beautiful 140-acre site, including four walking trails, gardens, fields and vista down to the saltwater Harraseeket estuary, is open dawn to dusk year-round. The early 1800’s saltbox farmhouse is open by appointment (207-865-3170 or via firstname.lastname@example.org) and for the Historical Society’s Annual Pettengill Farm Day. Please practice Carry-In, Carry-Out (whatever you bring in….perhaps a picnic lunch…leaves with you.) If you enjoy your time at Pettengill, you are invited to donate at the rusted metal saltbox donation box near the trailhead signage.
From Main Street in Freeport, turn east on Bow Street (across from L.L. Bean) and proceed 1.5 miles; turn right onto Pettengill Road. Park at the gate and enjoy the walk the dirt road for about 15 minutes to the farmhouse. There are no bathroom facilities. Seasonally, you may want to bring bug spray and your own water.
