2021 Harvest Dinner & Reception

Out of concern for our dinner guests, and with deep regret, we have made the decision to cancel this season’s Harvest Dinner.  The museum is in the midst of a much-needed construction project involving the buildings used for dining, and unfortunately, due to supply-line issues, work will not be completed in time for the dinner.  This decision was not made lightly, and certainly not the pathway we would like to be following.  Our year-end Harvest Dinner has been an important fundraising vehicle for the museum, and a joyous way to end the fort’s traditional season.

Militia Pay Record Under Stevens 1747-1748

New Life for an Old Loom

With Guest Blogger Tom G.

"Barn Loom"
Loom as set up in the museum store. Waiting patiently for a forever home.

Little did my wife and I plan on a project when we went to visit the Fort at No. 4 in July of 2018. We had been meaning to visit and we were finally going to make the trip from Enfield, NH, for a visit.

Gender, Politics, and Family Squabbles at Ethan Allen’s Homestead

April is New Hampshire Archaeology Month

In the usual course of activities, a presentation such as this would take place within The Fort at No. 4’s audiovisual space.  2020 is not, however, usual … so far.  In keeping with social distancing, and the various “stay home, stay safe” orders, we have moved this presentation to an online format.
