Blow-Me-Down Farm

Blow-Me-Down Farm was owned by Charles Beaman, an attorney from New York City.

It was Charles Beaman who in 1885, convinced Augustus Saint-Gaudens to summer in Cornish that year. Beaman rented Saint-Gaudens an old Federal-Style house on the Hill opposite the farm. Saint-Gaudens' arrival in Cornish sparked the beginning of the Cornish Art Colony.

The Blow-Me-Down Farm is owned by the Saint-Gaudens Memorial, a non-profit organization founded in 1919. The Saint-Gaudens Memorial is now looking for proposals by organizations and individuals for possible uses of the property.

Please review the Blow-Me-Down Farm, Request for Proposals for more information.
