Households
Small House Costumed interpreters are here to help you understand the past as it relates to the present. Make this your first stop to say “good day” and orient yourself to our 1830s Village.

Fitch House Autumn is exciting for everyone, farmers’ and mechanics’ families alike! Stop by here to see how a non-farming family might change how they feed their family as a wider array of food is available from home and neighbors alike.

Freeman Farm Fall is here at last, but the family’s work has only just begun. Learn about seasonal food and domestic work on a traditional, middling farm as we bring in the harvest, fill the root cellar, and rejoice in the bounty of the season.

Farm

(at the Freeman Farm)

Trades
Musket Demonstrations 
will happen at 1:00 p.m. Watch our interpreters load and fire a flintlock musket, near the Bullard Tavern.

Community
Asa Knight Store Country stores brought in goods from all over the world, through seaports like Boston and Providence. They also bought locally produced goods such as butter, cheese, and handwork for sale in those urban commercial centers.

The Carryall
We offer two horse-drawn carryall rides (weather permitting), included with the price of admission, around the Village. Please note from 12:00 – 1:30 pm there are no Carryall operating.
