One of THE best old historical villages I’ve been to. Much bigger than expected. Loved the different quilts. Re-enactors were very knowledgeable and engaging. It was a beautiful day and very enjoyable.

A magical place to experience the real meaning of Christmas with your children. A beautiful small town atmosphere with everything you could possibly think of to make it a memorable family tradition. Wonderful food, friendly and informative villagers & a beautifully lite town common.

Thank you for attending Christmas by Candlelight! We hope you will join us for this special program again this year, and perhaps visit during the day at some other time in the year.

The original buildings anf costumed, knowledgable interpretors bring you back to 1830s New England. The free admission for veterans was a great surprise as well!
