Mini Village

The miniature buildings were built by Everette Knowelton as a hobby starting in 1941, and were displayed at his home. After his death, the new owner of the house donated them to the town, where they are on display on the Main Street, but taken home each winter for care and cleaning by residents, then returned for summer.
