Olivia Parry’s Hillsdale Farm

From the early 1930s to 1943, Mrs. Olivia Parry owned and operated a dairy farm on what is now West End Road (Rene Gibson’s Westendlock Farm). Her husband Henry joined the family on weekends, taking the train to Hillsdale every Friday afternoon. Their children stayed on the farm with their mother and attended Roeliff Jansen Central School.

These memories have been been provided by Olivia Parry Bissell, one of the daughters of Olivia and Henry.
