Weir Farm was the summer home of pioneering American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir from 1882 to 1919. It is set amidst 68 acres of beautiful natural surroundings, which consists of open meadows, woodlands, fields, and waterways. The Farm was established as a National Park Site in 1990 and it is the only National Park Service unit dedicated to American painting. Visitors are welcome to not only explore the grounds, but also the home and studio of Julian Alden Weir. Also, the Weir Farm Art Center offers exhibits from an Artist-in-Residence program in a beautiful studio located right in the middle of the park.
