Did You Know? Wedmore Place
January 22, 2014By: Five Star Alliance

Wedmore Place
Wedmore Place
 is a historid farm that was settled in 1615. It was first called Archers Hope. In 1781, it was on the military maps of the French armies of Lafayette. It was identified due to its participation in the Revolutionary war against the British crown. At the time, the farm was owned by Maitre Bland, a reverend active American independence movement.

The 300 acre farm was acquired in 1983 as a virtually abandoned parcel by Patrick and Peggy Duffeler. They changed the name to Wedmore Place, a place conceptualized to feature art, history and culture in its stylistic design, its themes and decoration.

The first renovation project on the farm besides the reconstruction of a dwelling that was found out to have dated from 1736, was the start of the first planting of grapes in 1985 and the establishment of a winery.
