Visitors can explore the interaction of the European settlers and the indigenous native-American people; learn about the Farmington Canal which operated from 1828-1847; attend an 1840 one-room schoolhouse; see a Victorian carriage house and a replica of a 1683 meetinghouse; and visit an 18th century house with period furniture and costumes. Especially interesting is the vaulted ceiling in the ballroom. Old equipment once used to make fuses is housed in a modern building.
