New Canaan Historical Society

Field Trip

The highlight of our bus ride was driving by The Toy Chest and Baskin Robbins! :)

Missing: Yanni, Tommy, Brody (tooooo blurry...bumpy ride...sorry)


New Canaan during Colonial Times...

The children visited four areas; the Hearth, Craft Room, Tool Museum, and the Rock School. In each area, the children learned about what their lives would have been like if they had lived in the 1700's. Some highlights of our field trip included interactive experiences, such as carding wool and acting as students in a one-room schoolhouse.


The School House

Unfortunately, the only area in which photos and videos were permitted was in the school house. Here are some video clips!
