Wells, along with George Watson, the man behind moving the first buildings to the Village, and antiquarian Nina Fletcher Little, hired by Cheney Wells to coordinate decoration of the Towne house. Early curators Malcolm Watkins and Frank Spinney will also receive some mention. Reserving a broader retrospective of the museums history for its 75th anniversary in 2021, this exhibit will focus on the initial assembly of the Village and its first decade of operation. Cost: $28 Adults, $26 Seniors (55+), $14 Youths (3-17), Children 2 & Under FREE, Woo card discounts available.
