Fires in early Fairfield (newspapers)

Old newspapers hold a wealth of information. Visit the museum and read what we have transcribed from the old newspapers.

Recent discoveries: We spent most of the year working on our textile collection. We discovered many items that we were unaware that we owned. We have homespun from the early 1800's items. Many more handsewn items that previously thought.

We have started to scan some of our early documents, which we hope to get on line in the future.
