Current displays at the Welles-Shipman-Ward house

See antique weaving equipment at the Welles-Shipman-Ward house
The House, cited by the United States Department of the Interior as “possessing exceptional architectural interest”, is known for its enormous fireplace in the kitchen. The elaborate paneling and molding in the parlors have been noted in books on New England architecture as prime examples of their style. Upstairs, the Glastonbury Weavers display their craft on antique equipment, while the Northeast Chamber has children’s drawings etched on the walls. The Glastonbury Garden Club maintains the 18th century-style herb garden and grounds. The barns are filled with antique farming, household, and 19th century horse drawn vehicles.
