Next Week: A Tour of Leander Valentine's Grave!

Proving to be the most fruitful edition of the AJ's 'Westbrook Notes' to date (see below), here's this week's advertisement for Smiling Hill Farm's participation in Open Farm Day:

Smiling Hill Farm, 781 County Road, Westbrook, is one of 115 farms statewide
participating in the 19th annual Open Farm Day 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday. The
historic, 500-acre Smiling Hill Farm has Holstein cows along with a dairy store
and ice cream shop.
Col. Thomas Westbrook, an early settler and city
namesake, is buried on the farm.
[Emphasis mine]

Um, I appreciate the new nugget of intel and all. But I'm not sure Col. Westbrook draws the crowds quite like he used to.
