I was a bit premature to publish the last post because today I came upon a wonderful image of the Brodhead homestead tucked away in a box of old pictures. I’ve used Photoshop to remove the yellowing. The image must date back to the early 1900s/late 1800s when Robert Packer Brodhead owned it. Apparently, he added the third floor. So here is how the home and immediate surrounding would have looked all those years ago when the property was a very productive and busy farm. The stage coach would have passed right out front, beyond the white picket fence.
Update, 8/9/13: Another great photo can be found in the book: Eastern Poconos: Delaware Water Gap to Bushkill (p. 126). For a recent blog post that includes info on an archeological dig on the Brodhead farm site (aka Brodhead-Heller farm), click here.
Sadly, the 21st century is not treating the farm kindly. For more on that, click here.
