Yawkey Farms

This came from a reader named Ken. He received this photograph from his grandmother in 1995, and was wondering if anyone knew anything about the barn pictured here?

Yawkey Farms was located (I believe) out towards the Brighton Beach/Ojibway area, and was so named due to the connection to the Yawkey family who were affiliated with both the Detroit Tigers and later owned Boston Red Sox.

Any memories, stories or general information about Yawkey Farms?

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend.
