William Tuttle came to Freeport in 1797 to farm potatoes, but his deadly combination of clear-cutting and overgrazing caused enough erosion to expose the glacial desert hidden beneath the topsoil. The shifting dunes, which are 70ft deep in some areas, cover entire trees and the old farm’s buildings. Admission includes a 30-minute tram tour and lots of kiddy activities. To reach the farm, take I-95 exit 19 and head west of the highway for 2 miles.
