The Lachat Farm at the Juliana Lachat Preserve

In 1997, the late Leon Lachat left his 42-acre working farm on Godfrey Road West, and abutting Devil's Den, to the town of Weston and the Nature Conservancy. Lachat dedicated the property for public and educational use that emphasizes Weston's agricultural roots. Through a dual lease agreement in 2011, the conservancy oversees the wooded area next to its Devil's Den Preserve (about 22.5 acres) and the town is responsible for the front meadow portion of the property (about 19 acres), including the buildings.
