Summer: Horse drawn sleighs and carriages, an 1894 carousel, original antique structures, a black smith shop, cobbler, harness maker…all this and more awaits you at the Willowbrook Museum Village. Located in Newfield this museum is “large enough for your attention, yet small enough for an afternoon visit.” Strolling through the grounds is like stepping back into a 19th century New England village. With over 30 structures full of original objects of the time you can’t help but feel like you just stepped out of a time capsule. Willowbrook is about an hour from Portland, a little of the beaten path but, definitely worth the trip.The village also offers special events throughout the summer such as historic trade and craft demonstrations, and annual Civil War Encampment and special workshops for adults and families. It is a perfect place to take the kids for a living history lesson. So plan to spend a couple hours touring the museum and don’t forget to stop in the country store or ice cream parlor for a special treat!
