To us (Linda and Phil), owning Brook Farm Inn, in Lenox Massachusetts, is more than running a business. It’s also the maintaining of the building’s rich history. We researched the history of the inn through deeds, maps, and historical newspaper clippings (also very dusty ancient tax records in the basement of Town Hall), and the results of our search are posted on the website. So that’s how we were discovered by Michael Kraus, whose grandfather purchased the property in 1914. Michael’s grandfather was Charles Bleyman, who owned the property until the 1930’s. Michael and his wife, Susan, stayed with us recently, and furnished photos of Bleyman and other family members. So watch for updates to be posted on the Brook Farm Inn’s history page, and thank you, Michael!
