Books: by Title: Knox Farm State Park

Knox Farm State Park boasts more than 200 vintage images of a beautiful and unique New York state park.

A stone wall along Seneca Street in East Aurora, New York welcomes visitors to Knox Farm State Park with its charming buildings, woodlands and open fields. The farmland was purchased by Seymour H. Knox, an entrepreneur from Russell, New York. Successful in the five-and-dime store industry with his cousin F.W. Woolworth, Knox expanded his business interests to include raising horses and developing a self-sustaining farm.

Following his death in 1915, his family maintained and expanded the property, gracing it with architectural features reflecting their interests. In the 1990s, with the passing of Seymour Knox II and sons, the family's desire to preserve the beloved property was fulfilled with the establishment of Knox Farm State Park.

Highlights of Knox Farm State Park include:

  • The Residences, Pool and Squash Court
  • Lord and Burnham Greenhouse and Shipman Gardens
  • Livestock Barns, Stables and Horses
  • Working on the Farm
  • Events, Friends and Family
  • A Jewel in the County

Knox Farm State Park is the newest addition to Arcadia Publishing's popular Images of America series, from local authors Gerald L. Halligan and Renee M. Oubre, with a foreword by Seymour Knox IV.
