Focus on Brook Farm VIII – October 2022 through February 2023

Brook Farm in West Roxbury has long inspired writers, photographers, artist, artisans, and musicians. New Brook Farm (a recipient of Community Preservation Act Funding from the City of Boston) invites you to safely visit the Brook Farm Historic Site and continue the tradition by submitting your photos, artistic representations, prose, poetry, and musical works inspired by this historic place to our eight annual Focus on Brook Farm event.

Visit – Brook Farm Historic Site is located at 670 Baker Street, West Roxbury 02132 and is Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) land. You are free to visit on your own, following DCR rules, or during a New Brook Farm sponsored walk/tour.
