To commemorate the 247th anniversary of the Battle of Ridgefield, our museum is offering free site admission on Saturday, April 27. Take our "War at Home" tour to learn about the experiences of the residents of our site during the Battle, Connecticut’s only inland Revolutionary War battle. Discover how the members of the Keeler household navigated community division and the war’s impact on families, and discuss how we remember the events today.

Visitors should also head to the Visitor Center to view the traveling exhibition we're hosting from April 20-27. "The American Revolution Experience," a collaboration between the American Battlefield Trust and the Daughters of the American Revolution, introduces visitors to a cast of historical characters whose stories bring diverse experiences of the Revolutionary War to life. 

Tours of KTM&HC's historic tavern museum are free, but registration is required and advance registration is strongly recommended - tours will sell out!

Visitors can also take a Battle of Ridgefield walking tour, led by Ridgefield Historical Society. The hour-long tours begin in front of Casagmo Condominium Association on Main Street at 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 12 p.m. They trace the path of the Battle along Main Street and culminates with a presentation at KTM&HC, at the British cannonball embedded in the museum's corner post.
