This is a replica of the original settlements of Salem showing what the first buildings must have looked like before it was a town to a few representative structures of the town. There is a garden with period plants, a working kitchen, and a blacksmith shop. One of the museum people told me she cooks food as the Puritans did and even cooks their recipes which she says are quite tasty. At least two different blacksmiths work at the museum. You can watch them work and view the bay.
