Recluse Farm, the home of James and Jane Edgecomb, was located in South Hiram off the New Settlement Road about four miles from the village of Cornish, Maine. In June of 1883, veterinarian George H. Bailey visited the farm, known for breeding trotting horses, and published an article in the Maine Farmer. This article provides highlights and commentary related to Bailey's account.
