SUNDAYS - May 16-June 27   1-4 p.m.   

Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s new exhibit, “Summertime Amusements: To and Fro,” highlights vehicles seen at numerous summer events throughout the horse-drawn era. Folks of the day used a beach wagon to go to the beach, buggies and breaks to go to the races, common buggies and wagons to the fair and picnics, fringe top surreys to church, and a hearse to the cemetery. The children used goat and dog carts. The “Camp Ossipee” vehicle was used at a New Hampshire summer camp to move children to and fro, and a custom built 100+ year old wagon designed to move a rare children's flying seat ride from fair to country fair. The ride will be partially setup along with many more surprises.

The museum is open for public viewing on Sundays, from May 16-June 27 and again Sept. 5-Oct. 24, 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Free admission; donations are appreciated.
