This is a wonderful example of an 18th Century home built in North Brookfield, MA by Captain John Potter. I once played in the cellar hole of this home!

Is a small venue, but worth taking the time. Much valley history here, and the staff were very friendly, and answered all our questions. They were not busy, sad as more people would enjoy coming here if they knew about it.
