Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTM&HC) announces the opening of #HandsonHistory (#HOH): It Takes a Village Oct. 11 through Nov. 8. The award-wining exhibition explores the interdependency of farms, families, and businesses across Ridgefield’s history — showcasing individual trades and their tools.
An online exhibit — combining maps, narrative text, and multimedia content — takes visitors on a virtual tour of the businesses on Ridgefield’s 19th century Main Street. In addition, there is a curated display of featured trades on-site in the Carriage Barn, where visitors can learn more about Ridgefield’s trades through the tools that were used. All hands-on elements have been removed in compliance with COVID-19 protocols. Advance registration with timed entries for groups of up to 8 people will be required to visit the exhibition in the Carriage Barn.
