1812 Homestead Farm and Museum in Willsboro

I visited the 1812 Homestead and Farm Museum in August to get photos of the new barn being constructed there. The old one burned in August 2016.

While I was there, I captured images of some of the other buildings and happenings at the Willsboro site. The property was originally settled as a family home and inn. Now it functions as an educational foundation and museum of living history. The 130-acre facility is open to the public and includes a wood shop, candle cabin, outdoor beehive-style oven, blacksmith forge, sugar house, spring house, one-room schoolhouse, nature trail, nature center, animal pastures, barns, gardens, lawns, and forest.

Look for an article about the 1812 Homestead in the September issue of the Explorer.
