“This year, the Jacob Kelley Home celebrates its 200th anniversary. The significance of the home is not that it is still standing, but that we know its provenance, its connection with the community, and that we have allowed it to become representative of a shared time, from our historical narrative. The Jacob Kelley House stands as a reminder of 19th century living. It is iconic in that it reflects, with simple honesty, the difficulty and practical aspects of daily life. This home allows citizens a window into the past, through which they are able to gain a deeper appreciation for the contributions of a bygone generation and the modern offerings of their own generation.”
Don’t miss the chance to participate in some really fun and educational events.
