Settlers’ House and Barn

Settlers’ House offers a look at Vermont life in the 1790s. The two-room log house features an open hearth fireplace. Adjacent there is a vegetable garden and flax field.

Outdoors a clay bake oven and reproduction English-style barn, which serves as a special demonstration site for early American crafts and cooking.

Settlers’ House was built about 1846 in East Charlotte, Vermont of hand-hewn and dovetailed beech and pine timbers. The ceiling and floor joists are dovetailed into the outside walls. The house was moved to the Museum in 1955, and the barn was built in 2001.
