Come see our interactive exhibit all month long!

This award-winning exhibition explores the interdependency of farms, families, and businesses across Ridgefield’s history, showcasing individual trades and their tools. Each Sunday between October 1 and November 6, KTM&HC will host family demonstrations that put some of the exhibit’s featured trades on display, with live presentations of blacksmithing, shoemaking, and more by skilled craftspeople and artisans.

On these dates, KTM&HC will offer FREE site admission to all visitors, which includes a guided tour of our historic tavern museum as well as entry to It Takes a Village and related family demonstrations. During the week, school and youth groups can also book educator-led tours of the exhibit free of charge.

#HandsOnHistory: It Takes a Village is generously supported by The Fountain inn, Martha Campbell in memory of David Campbell, Nicholas Donofrio, Judi Pankenier, Joel Third, Brian Truskowski & Terry McManus, and Annette & Dan O’Brien. Thank you!

The exhibit is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays from October 1 through November 6, with FREE admission every Sunday.
