Interpreting Our Past

Through its engaging tours, history is brought to life for visitors as they journey through three floors of Hearthside and learn about its history and that of the families who lived there from our costumed guides, trained in the interpretation of the house.

With an impressive collection of antiques and artifacts, Hearthside’s history doesn’t just focus on one particular period of time but rather covers the range of years that the various families lived there. The feeling of stepping back to a bygone era and being welcomed into a family’s home is experienced through the coziness and warmth by the fireplace in the parlor, or the smells of fresh baked bread in the Colonial kitchen where home baked treats are often served during tours, or venturing behind the scenes into the attic space to view the centuries old looms where weavers labored to produce hand-made textiles.
"A day spent with so many loving people …
a truly welcoming feeling of being at home."
