The Manchester Historical Society will conduct free open houses of the restored eighteenth-century barn and the grounds of its Woodbridge farmstead on several Sundays and a Saturday throughout 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.: SUNDAYS, July 9, July 23, August 13, August 27, September 10, September 24, October 8, October 22, November 12, & SATURDAY, December 2. The Farmstead is located at Manchester Green at 495 East Middle Turnpike, near its intersection with Woodbridge Street. The barn, located behind (north of) the house, was restored with funds from the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office, the SBM Charitable Foundation, Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, and individual donors. Visitors can park at the municipal lot behind the Senior Center, along the street between the Senior Center and the farmstead itself. From the street, walk to the backyard using the grass driveway between the house and Woodbridge Pizza. The Woodbridge farmstead is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Historical Society is in the process of developing displays of farm tools and equipment. More information about local history at http://www.manchesterhistory.org
