The site of the concert is part of the original 500-acre Hilltop Farm of George Hendee, co-founder of the Indian Motorcycle Company in Springfield, Mass. All proceeds will go towards restoring the 20,000 sq. ft. Colonial Revival dairy barn Hendee built in 1914. FOFAH was organized as a nonprofit in 2002 with the mission to preserve the Hilltop farmstead as a resource for educational, agricultural and conservation activities for the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts community.
