Charlton History Day
Focusing on our agricultural heritage, Charlton History Day has something to offer for everyone. Starting at the Rider Tavern, 255 Stafford Street, Charlton, enjoy the dairy exhibit, featuring bottles and milk-related equipment from our town’s farms, along with a map showing their locations. Wander among the old planting and harvesting tools to guess their uses before checking to see their purposes. Marvel at the foresight and hard work of the Grange and the Garden Club shown in the displays. While there, take a guided tour of the historic building, and watch live spinning and weaving demonstrations. Then catch a ride on the hay wagon to the #2 Schoolhouse, 145 Northside Road, to hear about early schools, view pictures of 13 district schools, and try your hand at ringing the huge bell. Return to the hay wagon for a ride to Fay Mountain Farm, 12 Cemetery Road, to discover current methods for farming fruits and vegetables. Our Town Crier will be on hand to direct you to all the activities. Join the Charlton Historical Society for this FREE family event in Charlton’s historic Northside District.
