Chuck and Beth Goss are fourth generation owners of the historic Powder Major’s farm. The white Georgian farmhouse, which was built by John DeMerritt, is the oldest house in Madbury. In its nearly 300 year history only two families have owned this property. It remained in the hands of DeMerritt descendants until 1929 at which time it was sold to the Goss family which has restored and maintained this unique property for the past four generations. Chuck and Beth have lived at the farm since 2001 and are committed to preserving the farm for future generations. Utilizing the barn for weddings and events is part of the sustainability mission for the property.
Along with being land and historic building preservationists Beth and Chuck have been active in the promotion of New Hampshire and early American history and have long been involved at the American Independence Museum in Exeter and the Moffatt Ladd House in Portsmouth.
Self-avowed romantics who moved to the farm after getting married Chuck and Beth love the idea of sharing the barn and the land with couples looking to launch their own history.
