The Davis-Kell Farm

The Davis-Kell Farm is situated on the historic Chemin des Cantons, or Townships Trail, in the municipality of Ogden, close to the Vermont border.

The farm is an apt venue for "Art and the Automobile." After all, Henry Seth Taylor built Canada’s first "horseless carriage" in 1867 in Stanstead, a stone’s throw away. Taylor forgot
to put brakes on his self-propelled steam buggy, and it crashed when he descended a steep hill. Fortunate to have escaped the wreck, Taylor switched to building steamboats, but his partially successful car experiment inspired other inventors' dreams of automotive travel.

During "Art and the Automobile," there will be ample time for everyone to relax, chat, look at the automobile show or the art show, or stroll around the farm and watch the sun set over Mount Owl’s Head.
