The house was built by Samuel Taylor shortly after he returned from service in the Revolutionary War. The house has been renovated and is furnished with period pieces. The summer kitchen has a rotating display of farm related items including a portion of the Bray Brothers Collection.
Walk out the boardwalk at the farm. The view you will see is largely what Richard and Ruth Taylor saw when they came to this then isolated place in 1639. The Chapin Beach dunes are to the west and beyond them, Cape Cod Bay. The Town of Dennis, once part of Yarmouth, is on the far side of Chase Garden Creek running through the marsh.
From its earliest days, the Farm has been home to a variety of animals and livestock. We don’t know what livestock the early Taylors or George and Willie Bray kept when they lived on the Farm. We do know Robert Williams raised prize winning sheep and, at one point, pigs were raised. We have our own livestock now.
So come say hello to them.
The original Taylor house was an “earthfast” (post in ground) hall and parlor house about 27′ by 18′ with a later 18th century addition. The hall, the larger room with the hearth, was the heart of home activity and the only heated space, while the smaller parlor was a reserved for adults. Children would have slept in the unfinished second floor.
The barn at Taylor-Bray Farm dates from the early 19th century with an extension added in the early 20th century. The barn served the Taylors, the Bray Brothers and the Williams and Karas families well. It has been a focal point of the farm’s festivals for more than 20 years. But it has clearly suffered the ravages of 200 years of New England winters. Now, with grants from the Community Preservation Fund, the barn is being restored.

This large glacial erratic was probably a landmark to Native peoples long before Richard “Of the Rock” Taylor settled here. The “rock” moniker was used by Yarmouth residents to distinguish him form another Richard Taylor in town in the 17th century. At some point, the Bray Brothers attached a commemorative plaque to the rock.
Native peoples were familiar with this area they called Hockanom, a name still in use today. Archaeological evidence collected over several seasons of fieldwork at the farm document a rich pre-colonial past ranging from 10,000 years ago to just before the Taylors settled on the land about 1639.
For may years, the caretakers for the farm have lived there. The house is currently being used by the Taylor-Bray Farm Preservation Association while the barn and office space there is being renovated.
