Holiday Open House in December! Closed for tours for the season!
We think Parker Homestead is a beautiful, picturesque spot and we welcome you to visit. You are welcome to use your smartphone to capture your visit. However, if you are planning to stop by to take photos with something other than your phone, please contact us prior to your visit.
If you are a professional photographer and are planning to do a photoshoot (families, pets, or otherwise) please contact us in advance. There is an hourly fee or a yearly license available with variable costs depending upon the photographer's plan.
Personal or professional we are concerned about the safety of you and your subjects. Please do not climb or pose on farm equipment, be careful walking around (there are sometimes groundhog and chipmunk holes), and please show respect for our “old stuff.” Thank you!
Thank you for your interest in The Parker Homestead Property. As you may know, we are a 501C3 organization (PARKER HOMESTEAD-1665, INC.).

The fees listed below will go towards our mission to maintain the property and lands. Note that if an event is longer than 5 hours or if you require a setup or breakdown day, additional fees will apply.
