Elizabethtown's original central school provides ample space for a large collection of artifacts from over 200 years of Essex County history and culture. The exhibits cover early farming and frontier life, wilderness exploration and recreation, logging, mining, and transportation. Larger artifacts include a restored stagecoach, an Olympic bobsled, a canvas boat that converts into a tent, and a fire tower. Learn about Lake Champlain's role in pivotal military battles and events--from the French and Indian War to the War of 1812--by watching a half-hour sound-and-light show displayed on a large 35-foot map of the Champlain Valley. The Brewster Library research center houses a collection of rare books, maps, newspapers, photographs, census records, company ledgers and other materials. Special Events: Forest, Field, and Stream Day, lectures and temporary exhibits featuring local artists.
