Local Author Speaks About Farm Preservation

James Powers, a Wallingford native and Durham resident (shown at left), will discuss his new book, Saving the Farm: A Journey through Time, Place, and Redemption at Wallingford Public Library on June 10th.
Powers, a history teacher at Guilford High School, says his maiden effort as an author details how a farm in that Shoreline community was preserved in the face of development. It also the story of 10 generations of the Dudley family in Guilford, he said.
 “Above all,” Powers said, “Saving the Farm speaks to the need for our communities to renew their sense of place and work to preserve our disappearing historic and cultural resources that make us who we are."
The June 10th program begins at 7 p.m.

Let’s face it, the past and knowledge of it disappears every day before our very eyes and once it’s gone, it is often gone forever. The story of the Dudley Farm is unique in many ways on the surface, but the reality of preserving the past can only take place if people care. That is the soul of the process. Those of us, who were involved in saving the Farm, starting with the members of the Fire Company, made many mistakes yet inspired by the treasure put in our hands, were determined to succeed. In that journey, we all learned that as individuals we might affect some change, but together we could make a difference—we could and did save a farm and thus a piece of our collective past.
