A Woman and her Passion in the Gallery Thru August 3


Ruth Henderson was the founder of the Silo and Hunt Hill Farm.  She died peacefully at her beloved home in New Milford, CT on Feb. 25, 2014 at the age of 84.

We invite you to celebrate Ruth’s life, its many paths, friendships and traditions as she shared her love and her passion for life. Through pictures and memorabilia we trace her life from Plauen, Germany, to her fashion modeling career in the 1950’s, to her marriage to Skitch Henderson, her family life, the New York Pops, The Silo and more.

Donations in Ruth’s memory may be made to:

Thank you


The Silo and Hunt Hill Farm hosted a Community Conversation on Monday, July 28, at the Richmond Senior Center, New Milford, to solicit input and feedback from area residents, neighbors, members of the business and cultural communities, government officials, and other area non-profits. 

We thank all who came to participate.  The room was filled to capacity by people eager to support Hunt Hill Farm as its Board of Directors embarks on a strategic plan update for The Silo and Hunt Hill Farm.

Featured Story

“How We Got Here”

– an excerpt from the introduction to Ruth & Skitch Henderson’s Seasons in the Country, 1990.
