Spotlight on Shady Brook Farm and Resort…

August 24, 2012

Shady Brook Farm and Resort was located at 183 Old Post Road in Marlboro. It was built sometime before 1850. It was a resort from 1899 to 1949. Before it was known as Shady Brook Farm, it was known as the Caywood Farm, where the Caywood variety of currants originated. The Caywoods also established Shady Brook Farms boarding house, which welcomed summer visitors for 50 years. In the late 1920s, American impressionist, Alfred Maurer (1869-1932), spent several summers in a cottage located behind the main house painting many scenes of the Hudson Valley.
