Date: Sunday, May 26th
Time: 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Iron Work Farm has joined Freedom's Way Hidden Treasures program, celebrating natural, cultural, and historic resources within Freedom's Way National Heritage area.

Visit the historic Faulkner Homestead to view the “first piano in Acton.” This elegant pianoforte was given in 1813 to a young lady who later became the bride of Col. Francis Faulkner’s grandson, Henry Skinner, who lived for a time in the Faulkner House. The original piano stool and the 1813 bill of sale, complete with a glaring dealer’s misprint, are also on display.

Members of the Nashoba Valley Weavers’ Guild will also be on hand to demonstrate weaving and spinning.

Open House at Jones Tavern

The Iron Work Farm’s other museum, the 1732/ca.1818 Jones Tavern, 128 Main Street, will also be open. The building was the home of the Jones family, who ran a tavern, store, and a dairy farm. Remnants of the tavern taproom are still intact, and items from the old Jones Farm will be on display.

No admission charge, but donations are welcome.

Where and how to find us:
