Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run

Mr. Claude Moore was a philanthropist who donated $250,000 in the 1980s to keep the Turkey Run Farm alive as the only privately owned and operated national park.

The Farm then changed its name to the Claude Moore Colonial Farm.

Why 1771?
The Farm's focus is on pre-Revolutionary agriculture, not politics.

There was no major political events in 1771, so it allows us to focus on the crops and daily life instead.
