Waters Farm, a hilltop homestead built in 1757 by Stephen Waters, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in Sutton, Massachusetts overlooking beautiful Lake Manchaug.
With stunning views of the lake, barns, outbuildings, and pristine farmland, Waters Farm offers visitors a rare glimpse of 19th century New England farm life at its best.
Waters Farm is 120 acres of watershed land given to the Town of Sutton by Dorothea Waters Moran in 1974. Her third cousin once removed, Bud Gurney, also of Sutton, made it happen. He was the founder of Waters Farm Preservation Inc. After his recent death in 2007, his daughter, Pam Farnham, continues the family tradition. Pam says, "Waters Farm is the benefactor of multiple generations of family members who donate their time for upkeep and events. It is not uncommon to have three generations working side-by-side, and, in some occasions, four. It is all about family and commitment."
