Winter was perhaps the least busy season in early nineteenth-century rural New England, compared to the busy planting, growing, and harvesting seasons, but there was still plenty to do. Visitors to the Village can currently see some of the activities that kept families busy in the winter, such as candlemaking, caring for the year’s preserves, and other vital household tasks. Our tradespeople are also busy, working on everything from needlework to pottery to cabinetmaking to blacksmithing!
