The wheel of life rolls on

Wagon Wheel Farm:* 4/22/13
CC Jean Stimmell

Once upon a time, a young man made a smart decision, staking his future on a sturdy new wagon to help transform his fledgling farm into a paradise. But time marches on.

The farmer and farm are now long gone but the old wagon, weathered and worn (next to what is now the town community parking lot) still stands guard: A living testament to the past when times were simple, things were made to last, and you could make a honest living by hitching your wagon to a dream.

*The property was acquired by the town of Durham in 1989 "to preserve its scenic vistas, provide for future municipal purposes and preserve open space."
