The Lands at Hillside Farms Master Plan

Kingston, PA

This 460+ acre farm located in the Back Mountain area in Kingston, PA has numerous well-maintained structures that hemmler + camayd architects was retained to conduct a study of to transform them into a sustainable operating farm. The study proposed how to create a self-sustaining, regional cultural attraction for visitors that celebrates a unique aspect of Pennsylvania’s agricultural heritage, while presenting new and enlightened healthy lifestyle options and sustainable agricultural practices. Recommendations were made to preserve the land (open green space and woodlands), buildings and artifacts of the historic farm so as to retain the setting’s integrity and present the visitor with a cohesive, engaging nature-oriented experience.
