Hall Farm Preserved
Mary Lyn Ray, a children’s book author from nearby South Danbury and longtime friend of Don and Jane, called her friend, Lynne Munroe to enlist help in saving the farm.
“The Don and Jane Project,’’ a hastily organized group of friends, neighbors, and fans of Hall and Kenyon was formed to support this effort. Enough cash was raised to purchase the house and 160 acres.
Munroe and Ray want to designate the farm as a National Historic Landmark and convert it into a nonprofit museum or writers’ retreat. They acknowledge many unanswered questions about how such a retreat would be structured and financed to ensure that it becomes an enduring link honoring the legacies of Hall and Kenyon.
