The Clinton Historical Society summer exhibit features a look at early farming and farm family life in Clinton and Dutchess County before electricity and tractors arrived.  The strict nature-driven schedule of the farmer, the supportive tasks of his wife and business partner, the education of the children, and the social life of the family are described in text and vintage images.

** Highlights **

* Over 120 vintage images with captions

* 40 early farm-related artifacts

* horse-drawn antique farm implements

The exhibit is open every Saturday and Sunday in July, from 1-4pm.
