Experience the past with these ongoing hands-on activities: dress in 18th century clothing; play with old-time toys; card and spin wool; read from a hornbook; write with a quill pen; make a tavern game; carry buckets; find out what’s for dinner in a 1700’s kitchen; and mind your 18th century manners!
The “Indian House” was built in 1929 as a replica of the famous 1699 Ensign John Sheldon House. Located at 107 Main Street, the house is a few doors north of the Deerfield Inn, on the same side of the street.
