The Burnside Plantation was a working farm that supported the Moravian Church community from the mid-1700s into the mid-1800s. Originally about 500 acres, 6.5 acres have been preserved and contain the farmhouse, summer kitchen, barn, and several outbuildings. It's open to visitors and sometimes there are demonstrations on farming and cooking techniques. Also, it is home to the Bethlehem Police Department's horses. Check it out here if you are interested in visiting.
We didn't find anything very exciting at the yard sale, but enjoyed looking around the garden and buildings on the farm. It was a gorgeous day and amazingly enough, I remembered to take my camera. So enjoy!
