Great Hall

The Great Hall is situated on the second floor of the gatehouse. We do not have elevators to this space, however. The hall can seat 150 people at tables. Two fireplaces dominate the ends of the hall, and the space is lit entirely by candles. Very minimal electricity is available.

David Farnsworth House

The David Farnsworth House is configured as a classroom/lecture hall, accommodating 35 people seated at tables, or 60 seated auditorium-style. This building has electricity available, along with a chalkboard and two pull-down projection screens if you have a projector you wish to bring.

Hastings House

The Hastings House is an aesthetic building with a fireplace, south and west facing windows, and a back door to herbal gardens. This space has no electricity, so it is lit by candles. Approximately 40 people can be seated at tables here, or 75 auditorium-style.

Cotton Barn

Our 18th century barn, donated by the Cotton family, lies outside of the stockade. No electricity is available here. Capacity is about 75 people.


Our three vast fields can host an army or two (and regularly do). Historical overnight camping is permitted with appropriate proof of insurance.
