At the center of Great Hollow Nature Preserve’s historic facilities is The Merritt House, a newly renovated 18th Century farmhouse. The Merritt House has office space, a classroom/lecture room, a conference room, a wet lab, and lodging for seasonal staff and visiting researchers. The living areas of the house include 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a living room and dining room, two fireplaces, a catering kitchen, and a laundry room. Ancillary buildings include a smaller, newly-renovated farmhouse and two historic barns. Extensive lawn space with scenic views of the wetland and hillsides in the distance provide a picturesque setting for outdoor events.
