LOCAL SMALL MUSEUM

Would be good for families with children with short attention spans. Quality exhibits, small but quality.

A nice trip back in time, interesting for the whole family. Not overwhelming, but a good taste of one of he earliest colonies.

The Tour of the Thayer House is a great Tour if you are like history. There is parking and a Museum in the Building where you meet to take the tour. I recommend making a visit if you are interested in local history.

This program is local, and cheap, however, I went here on a field trip, and my time was wasted, only making bread and butter to find out I was allergic to some of the ingridients such as dairy, and we sat for about 2 1/2 hours listening to someone share his informational knowledge.
