Weir Farm National Historic Site is a place where the home and landscapes so essential to the work of Julian Alden Weir are preserved for all to enjoy. This classic New England property includes lovely open meadows and dappled woodlands crisscrossed by moss covered stone walls. Winding trails lead to a pond Weir built on 10 acres of land he purchased in 1896 with a $2500 prize for his painting The Old Rock (also known as The Truants) at the annual exhibition of the Boston Art Club.
Julian Alden Weir was among the first American artists to convey an intimacy with and appreciation of nature as it is found in one’s own backyard.
