Trailside Organic Farm at Cornwall Manor

A unique partnership was announced in March 2021 with the industry experts at Rodale Institute to establish Trailside Organic Farm at Cornwall Manor! Located on The Woods Campus, adjacent to the Rail Trail, a USDA certified organic vegetable farm has been established and the development and organic farming will be led by Rodale Institute’s team of industry experts.

This strongly supports Cornwall Manor’s wellness philosophy, which is based on the principle that each resident is entitled to enjoy and maintain the highest level of health, dignity, independence and activity. Cornwall Manor is the first retirement community to partner with Rodale Institute.

The Cornwall Manor Bark Park offers a safe, open environment to unleash your furry friends for exercise and play with other dogs. Dogs are social animals and need to interact with other dogs and people on a regular basis. This new feature will help foster happier, healthier dogs- thereby enriching the lives of their owners.

The Bark Park is located on the Buckingham Campus, below the Mansion, near the Bocce Courts and Community Gardens. The area is fenced-in with benches and waste disposal receptacle.

Cornwall Manor Railroad Club

Cornwall Manor’s Railroad Club occupies 1,300 square feet of the renovated Mule Barn at 100 Rexmont Road, directly across from Cornwall Manor’s Health Center. With more than 75 pieces of rolling stock, the Club operates two layouts. A bi-level O gauge layout that has four independent loops and a large array of interactive displays. An ever-expanding HO layout, highlighted with dozens of custom-made historical buildings, includes a circa 1950 Cornwall village and a City of Lebanon section. Club meetings are held at the Mule Barn on the third Tuesday of each month and works sessions are planned on an as needed basis. Railroad related trips and information opportunities are scheduled throughout the year. The Club hosts at least two public Open Houses a year, plus resident (family and friends) tours upon request. Members bring a variety of skills to the Club if no more than a love of trains and model trains. If we had a motto, it would be “All Aboard!”

Additional information on the Railroad Club can be found on the blog.

Boiler House & Greenhouses

Greenhouse at Cornwall Manor

The Boiler House housed the steam heating system used year-round to heat the historic greenhouse, which cared for exotic plants and flowers that were used on the Buckingham Estate. Both greenhouses were painted, received new glass panes, a shading system was installed and upgrades were made to the heating system as part of the campus renovations. The Joseph L. Ferry Greenhouse (pictured to the left of the Boiler House) was named after Joseph Ferry, who served as the Buckingham’s head gardener for more than 50 years. The Sarah H. Coleman Greenhouse (pictured to the right of the Boiler House) is named after Miss Sarah H. Coleman, who had the historic greenhouses built in 1881, at a cost of $10,000.

Both greenhouses are operational and are used by Cornwall Manor’s green-thumbed residents. The Boiler House is new resident amenity space used for meetings and get-togethers. The space features seating for 24 people, a bathroom and kitchenette.
