Eustis Estate

Farm Staff

From the early years through the 1920s, the MacDonald family supplied most of the farm labor on the estate. Up to eleven family members worked for the Eustises, followed by a second generation of MacDonalds who were born and raised on the estate while their parents worked here. Other individuals and families were also employed at the estate over the years to operate the many facets of farm work. At one time there was a dairy and pig barn, carpenter shop, paint shop, pipe shop, harness shop, machine shop, and blacksmith shop on the property.
