Poore Family Homestead

A historic homestead and settlement that portrays one family's life from the 1830s to the 1980s. The house, barns, and outbuildings are all in authentic condition and reflect their use and era. Groups will be able to experience a time that existed prior to the rural electrification of northern New Hampshire, and engage in activities like acting on a stage, hiking, and picking apples and pressing them into cider. The Museum is the last remaining, original 100-acre historic farm settlement of its kind in the North Country.
