Lucknow Farms is named after Lucknow, a mountain estate in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. The estate is also called "Castle in the Clouds". Lucknow was constructed in 1913-1914 by Tom Plant, a shoe manufacturer. In 1942, its ownership passed to his friend, Fred Tobey. It remained in the Tobey family until the mid-1950s, when the illness of Susan Colby Tobey required her to return to Plymouth, New Hampshire, the family home. Today, the estate is now owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust and is opened to the public, May through November.

Lucknow is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust and operated by its organization, the Castle Preservation Society.

We named Lucknow Stables to remember the racing stable of Fred Tobey which he gave that name. He kept a few horses at the Lucknow estate, which had a stable, carriage house, a hundred miles of carriage roads, and twenty acres of fields on the property. But Fred raised his Standardbreds (he raced sulkies) at a farm in Plymouth. He kept his trotters at Lucknow Stables in Saratoga, New York, where he raced them. He also raced in Massachusetts and at circuits in the New York City area.
