Historic Walnford is a beautiful historic site which is part of the Monmouth County Park System (New Jersey). I was struck with the beauty and quiet of of this wonderful site. The impeccably maintained park has many wonderful buildings that are open for public viewing. The village started in 1734 with a gristmill. A Philadelphia Quaker merchant, Richard Waln, saw an ad for the property which offered 3 mills, blacksmith, large house, 5 tenant houses, farm buildings, and farmland. He bought the property in 1772 and named it Walnford. The property grew to 1300 acres and housed 50 people. This wonderful barn housed forty-eight Guernsey cows in the early 20th century when dairy farming was popular in the area.
