This is such a cool little find in Blackstone! The museum featured several restored carriages, buggies, and sleighs, with a brief history of each one. I really enjoyed reading about and seeing all of these unique items. There is a very cool history tucked into...More

Checked out during the Blackstone Arts & Crafts Festival. Walked through at our own pace. Was free to checkout. Was interesting to see the many styles of carriages throughout history and the prices of them back then.

My wife and two friends visited here and we were very impressed. We also went to Schwartz's Tavern. Original building built in the 18th century. I really think you history buffs should put this on your list.

There is no reason why these two attractions should be so lightly attended. I think it's probably because there's not a lot of tourism going on in Blackstone, but these are definitely worth a visit. The curator is the grandson of the collector of almost...More
