Colonial Heritage Center
The Colonial Heritage Center provides opportunities to learn about daily life and the American Revolution. Don't forget to visit the Eastern National bookstore!
Located in the Colonial Heritage Center is a colonial map exhibit, including a ten-minute battle diorama program. There is also an exhibit gallery that focuses on colonial lifestyles. The displays emphasize the landscape, agricultural and household chores, health and education, crime and punishment, various trades, and information on the Hoskins family who lived here at the time of the battle. There are many things to see such as the loom and water wheel pictured here. In addition, the exhibit gallery includes some hands-on activities.
