Donated gingerbread houses by professionals and amateurs make this one amazing sight to be seen. Holiday shop always has great finds and reasonable prices. All proceeds go directly to operating this private library and museum which showcases the history of South Windsor.

Wonderful glimpses of South Windsor history are made available in this wonderful museum. Docents are so knowledgeable and gracious. A great get away from the hub-bub of our fast-paced society. You'll be glad you took the time to visit! Gail Griffith
