Visitor Tips and News About Tobacco Museum
A museum dedicated to the history of the tobacco farming industry in the Connecticut River Valley, which apparently produces the best cigar tobacco in the world. Fully restored tobacco curing shed contains lots of antique farm equipment, and a separate building contains cigar memorabilia and tons of photographs. As a bonus...it's located in a beautiful park.[Jay, 07/28/2012]
