Summary expansion
Mitchell had previously published "My farm of Edgewood" in 1863, and felt that those readers would be entertained by another romantic portrait of country life which included Rockwood's charming photographs of the farm, and Mitchell's own description of the improvements he has undertaken and the changes he has wrought "to make an enjoyable and inexpensive country-home...." Having searched New England for an "idyllic gentleman farmer's rural estate, Mitchell finally purchased 200 acres in New Haven, Connecticut in 1855 for $16,000, where he lived for the next 53 years until his death in 1908. Mitchell made many improvements to the farm and house (still standing at 999 Forest Road in New Haven); a new house was built in 1872 at the corner of Edgewood and Forest Roads. Today the property is owned by the Hopkins School, which purchased it in 1921. For detailed background and photographs, see "Environmental plan for Hopkins School" prepared for the Hopkins School, New Haven, Connecticut by Cilla Kellert, Fall 2008, pages 10-13, available online at http://www.hopkins.edu/ftpimages/82/download/Hopkins%20Environmental%20Plan.pdf
