Hidden History: "The Sweep of Time" at Taylor-Bray Farm

The Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port is a 23-acre swath of land fronting the marshes near Cape Cod Bay in an area of Yarmouth Port known as Hockanom. Richard and Ruth Taylor first came here from England and began farming the land in 1639. Over the course of a few hundred years, there were seven generations of Taylors.

As Chair and Member of the Yarmouth Historical Commission Priscilla Gregory played a vital leadership role in the formation of the Taylor-Bray Farm Preservation Association. Mrs. Gregory's clear vision of the farm's place in town history provided the guidance that formed the basis of an enduring partnership between the town of Yarmouth and the Association. Her encouraging attitude and tough love lessons were a perfect combination in helping a new non-profit organization find its footing and long term mission of maintaining Taylor-Bray Farm for historic preservation and conservation purposes.
