Community Heritage, Visual & Performing Arts

                                 The Museum

Not only is the North Country blessed with natural beauty of its lakes, mountains, forests, its also has a rich heritage of  people, places, and things that make this region what it is.  With the help of the Colebrook  Area Historical Society, the Tillotson Center celebrates this heritage with a special museum operated as an annex to the Society's Town Hall Museum.

Located in the Center's lower level, the annex offers a glimpse into the region's past.  After all, it is difficult to understand the accomplishments of today without knowing how it all began.  This is accomplished through displays and dioramas that illustrate school rooms, kitchens, and farming techiques from the past.  Each display features artifacts from a particular era illustrating cutting-edge technology in those times.

Perhaps the most exciting parts of the Annex exhibit are the displays of firefighting equipment, including a soda-acid wagon actually used by the Colebrook Fire Department in the 1880's.
