The Raitt Homestead Farm Museum started out as a non profit organization called the Eliot Antique Tractor & Engine Association in 1996. When we acquired the 33 acre farm property from third generation Gerald Raitt in 2003 we kept the same mission of preserving farming history, but that became so much more as we now were preserving the late 1800’s former dairy farm property, buildings and equipment. In 2006 we changed our name to the Raitt Homestead Farm Museum ot better reflect what we are about.
