丹尼斯农场 Charitable Land Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of 丹尼斯农场. The 153-acre historic farm located in Brooklyn Township, 萨斯奎哈纳县, was purchased and settled by the ancestors of Denise Dennis, free African Americans who journeyed to Northeastern Pennsylvania from Connecticut in the late 1700s.

In 2012, Keystone began hosting 丹尼斯农场 Symposium and Field Tour, an annual on-campus conference which also included guided tours of 丹尼斯农场 conducted by Keystone students.
