Blake Eskin visits the salt-water farm in Brooklin, Maine, that used to belong to Katharine and E. B. White, until it was sold after his death in 1985. Mary Gallant, who with her husband, Robert, purchased the property from the Whites, points out features of the farm that readers of "Charlotte's Web" would recognize, and talks about how her family has made it their own in the twenty-five years they have owned it.
