White Cloud Farm has a fascinating history, which is why we’re straying a bit from our usual coverage area and heading on over to Lawrence Township. In 1930, Charles Lindbergh, his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh and son Charles Lindbergh Jr. rented the farmhouse here — one of three parcels now for sale — while their own home was being built in East Amwell. Anne  wrote warmly in her diaries of the time the family spent there. Of course, Charles Jr. would be kidnapped from the East Amwell home in 1933, when the family spent an uncharacteristic overnight at their as-yet-unfinished home.

On a brighter note, the farm itself later became, according to the listing, a world-class, record-setting Swiss dairy farm. Having grown up in the city, I am impressed without understanding why. It is now owned by an architect/planner/designer/gentleman farmer, and his wife, a designer of couture cake stands.
