This week’s Tour Through Time looks at the McCormick Farm on the north side of Route 11, behind the village of Hogestown. The farm was owned by the McCormick family beginning in 1745. The McCormick Farm is now owned by the estate of Ui Ung Lee, an investor whose family has attempted to sell the farm at times over the past several years.
The site is farmed by a tenant farmer. Since 1983, Natural Lands Trust has held an easement over the farm, granted to the group by the heirs of the McCormick family, transferring rights to future development to the nonprofit foundation.
These images were taken in 1988 for the architectural survey of Cumberland County.
Tour Through Time will run Saturdays in The Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society.
Sentinel photographer Michael Bupp will work with staff at the Historical Society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.
