Historic Facts This property, once known as Walnut Grove Farm, has a rich history and affiliation with harness horse racing. Alden Goldsmith, a prominent horse owner and breeder, lived on the property (likely in the main house) and was of the 4th generation of his family to live there. His family came to own the property under a patent from Queen Anne in 1735. Rysdyk's Hambletonian, a famous trotter horse, sired several successful trotters that were trained on the farm in the 1800s. Goldsmith and his two most famous horses, Volunteer and Goldsmith's Maid, were world-renowned and have been memorialized in the Harness Racing Hall of Fame. Of note, there is a memorial stone on the property inscribed with Volunteer's name, years of birth and death, and the fact that he was sired by Hambletonian.
