In 1924 author, economist,
philosopher, Ralph Borsodi
and family designed and
began construction of this
homestead, utilizing native
field stone, their own
and semi-skilled labor.
By 1934 they completed
"Dogwoods" and an enclave
of five buildings. Here
they developed the "School
for Living" described in
"Flight from the City,"
Borsodi's acclaimed book
that inspired his Bayard
Lane, Van Houten Fields
developments in Rockland
and other back-to-the-land
communities nationally.
