Shinglekill Farm is located in the Hamlet of Acra, about two miles from Shinglekill Falls. The house was built in the late 1920’s as a boarding house by Great Grandpa Michael Lamanec. At one time this family property was home to over 200 Chickens, Cows and a billion Honey bees. Great Grandpa Lamanec was a reputed gin supplier to the infamous gangster Legs Diamond. Legs Diamond met his fate not far from here where he was shot down by federal officers in his Catskill Mountain cabin. The farm is gradually being restored by the Lamanec Family.
