  • “War at Home”: A museum interpreter shares the experiences of the residents of our site during the Battle of Ridgefield, Connecticut’s only inland Revolutionary War battle, on April 27, 1777. Learn about 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.
