Find cool and unusual gifts at our Historic Sites’ Museum Shops! There are hundreds of treats and treasures for men, women and children, with new items arriving throughout the season.
New this season you’ll discover:
Old-Fashioned Garden Whirligigs. Perfect for those who have a green thumb or sense of humor. Crafted by the Walston Woodcraft Company of Mt. Vernon, Maine (a leader in the revival of interest in this rustic American art form since 1925), we’ve selected dozens of traditional and colorful designs from lumbermen chopping wood to farmers milking cows.

Art Prints. Tales from Woodfield of Alstead, New Hampshire.
