Nancy Drew Ghostwriter Harriet Adams's Bird Haven Farm in Martha Stewart Living Oct. 2017

Nancy Drew Sleuths members visited Bird Haven Farm at our 2015 Mini Con #3 - owners Janet an Wayne were very gracious to let us spend the day there in such a beautiful and tranquil haven. Former owner, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams wrote some of her Nancy Drew books at this farm retreat when she wasn't at home or working at the Syndicate offices. The farm and their annual cider party was featured in the October 2017 issue of Martha Stewart Living and one of the captions notes the Adams/Nancy Drew connection - the red barn image below. The ghost of Harriet is said to haunt the property as well, often sensed in her former writing room (shown below). Janet's Orchard Jewelry has reproduced a vintage key from Harriet's time on the property as a pendant and it's quite lovely.
