It has been a dream of Board Members and lots of current members over the years to open a museum quality exhibit to the public telling the story of Valley Falls, and the history of what we’re trying to preserve on these 8 acres. Finally, in June of 2023, Vernon Mayor Daniel Champagne joined with FVF members to celebrate the completion and opening of the new Heritage Center, located at 345 Valley Falls Rd in Vernon.
The museum is now open on Sunday afternoons in June, July and August, from 1-4 PM. The 8-acre property features a circa 1911 stable, dairy barn, root cellar, piggery, ice house and manure shed. The buildings are complete with information panels and articles found within that tell the story of the previous owners, the tools they used, and the contributions they made while working and playing at Valley Falls.
We hope you are able to spend some time on a Sunday afternoon with family and friends to take a look at the history being preserved here! Parking is available at the Barn. Begin your tour in the basement of the barn at our welcome table. Pick up a “Walking Tour Guide” and follow the map to enjoy all the buildings and their displays. End your tour back at the street level of the barn.
