Step into Easton’s past as we celebrate autumn with a special Open House at the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead.

Lisa Burghardt, an Easton resident, will demonstrate spool knitting and lead children of all ages to create bracelets and potholders using this easy to use knitting tool.  The barn will be open with docent Harry Audley showing a treasure trove of antique farm tools and describing their various uses critical to farmers in centuries past. At the barn, children can draw water from a hand pump and grind corn into meal as part on this hands-on experience.   Docents will be available for tours of the house and you are welcome to stroll through the garden and grounds of the Homestead overlooking the Aspetuck Reservoir.
