Concord Museum showcases its agricultural roots

Continue reading below

The small but thoughtful exhibit “The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord” at the Concord Museum gives the flavor of our connection to the land with wooden Old Colony plows in a classic arrangement of farm tools circa 1790; furnishings from the home of a well-off farmer; old milk bottles (the DeNormandie and Verrill families were once partners in dairy farming); and butter molds. Some hands-on exhibits, videos, and even a guessing game will appeal to children, too. An assemblage of 2,000-year-old local stone tools reminds us how long we have been living off the land.
Concord Museum, Lexington Road and Cambridge Turnpike, Concord. 978-369-9763, www.

Exhibit runs through March 17.
