Wiseman Farm – An Historic Estate is Reborn

Like a whiff of perfume left on a favorite sweater, the essence of Virginia Downing Wiseman is everywhere at Wiseman Farms, from the snowdrops she planted to the impeccably raked riding arena.
When she died in 2013 at age 93, Virginia left a rich legacy and a lengthy list of accomplishments. If one imagines a lifetime as a suitcase, then Virginia packed it until the zipper could barely close and sat on it to cram in […]
