Back in the swing of things…

Getting back in the swing of things as the Ruggles House begins its 67th season. Yes! The house first opened its doors to visitors in 1950. And, we are rapidly approaching the 200th anniversary of the house being built. Over the years there have been some big projects undertaken by the Ruggles House Society. The largest had to be the reconstruction of the ell at the back of the house.

We are beginning another big project; the re-creation of a carriage house that once stood on the property. Archeologists found a stone foundation and we plan to erect a simple post-and-beam building on that site. The carriage house will allow us to expand our display space as well as hold events, meetings, do demonstrations.

It is moving past the “wishful thinking” stage and into the serious planning and fundraising stages. Stay tuned and keep your eyes right here to track our progress to the goal.
