Over the River and Through the Woods: New England Family Life circa 1844
In 1844 Maria Lydia Child wrote “Over the River and Through the Woods," a poem celebrating how families traveled to holiday gatherings in 1844. Through playing in an 1845 child-size farmhouse, young visitors will discover how the technology of the steam engine drove changes in America’s culture, home life, and travel in 19th century New England.
