You’ll find options, as well as samples, settings, lighting, and color choices. Each is here to create ideas. Provide a style and range of possible colors, textures, and materials. It’s time to begin thinking about those unique touches that reflect you and the story you want to tell.
This was the home of John F. Patterson, Sr., where he and his family lived for many years. Some 30 to 40 Standardbred pacers and trotters were stabled in the barns and trained here. Several became world champions. The workday began early and never ended before dark. His son, John, left the farm in the early 80’s to begin his harness racing career on the New York circuit. John Sr. continued to train, race, and work the farm and his son returned home in ’92 to join him. John Patterson, Sr. was inducted into Harness Racing’s Living Hall of Fame in 1994.
In honor of this stately home’s distinguished past, we have carefully chosen historic photos and harness racing memorabilia, which you’ll find inside the home. This priceless collection creates a special connection to the home and the family that made Patterson Farms a place for the ages.
