The Friends group received a $3,000 grant from the Monmouth County Historical Commission Monday night to support utility costs for the Baird Homestead, 24 Baird Rd., a Greek Revival farmhouse built in the early 19th century on a 500-grain farm, which also included extensive orchards, and both fruit and ornamental trees. The house is the site for several activities during the year and is on the annual Weekend in Old Monmouth tour set for May 5 and 6 this year.
