Hart Square’s Annual Living History Festival showcases the expertise, knowledge, hard work, and commitment of its artisans and demonstrators. You can see nearly 100 old-time crafts from flax making, cotton baling, and tinsmithing to apple butter making and the sweet sounds of old-time music. 

Hart Square is the most comprehensive museum of Early American structures and antiques in the world. Not only is the breadth of our collection unmatched, but the experience is unparalleled. Our museum does not confine artifacts to glass cases. We do not rope off certain sections. Rather, we invite a visitor into a space that feels like a family or craftsperson got up and walked out moments prior. We strive above all for authenticity. 

This is a rain-or-shine event!
