Patriots Day Spirit is Moving Indoors!

Nashoba weavers loom 400 The expected inclement weather is proving to be a spoiler.  The outdoor activities for our Patriot's Day observances have been cancelled.

But all is not lost...it will be warm and dry inside, so if you're looking for a Patriots' Day weekend activity, please come visit with members of the Nashoba Valley Weavers Guild as they demonstrate weaving and spinning and show off the 19th-century loom.

The Faulkner house is restored as it was in April, 1775, and there are displays on hand about Col.s Francis and Winthrop Faulkner and their families.

For $4.00 you can also pick up a copy of Francis Faulkner, Jr.'s account of April 19, 1775.
