FOR ONLY THE THIRD TIME IN OVER A CENTURY, this rare, prominent and spectacular property on Lake Champlain is offered for sale.
Originally a grand, prize-winning Ayrshire cattle and timber farm established in the early 20th century by Henry Lee Higginson,
financier and founder of the Boston Symphony. Kate Smith stayed there. Babe Ruth was a visitor. And, Gov. Mario Cuomo chose
Sheldon Farm as the site for the signing ceremony for his legacy Environmental Protection Fund. Simply put, Sheldon Farm is a
legacy property -- a cherished site to be passed on through the generations.
