Did You Know??

Windsor Locks has a wonderful hidden gem …


The Noden-Reed Museum and Barn!

Maybe you’ve lived here all your life and never visited or perhaps haven’t been inside for years.  Maybe, you are new to our great little town or live in one of our beautiful surrounding towns. Did you know that the museum features items such as textiles, antique furniture, photos, paintings, school, and war memorabilia all celebrating the rich history of  Windsor Locks? Our volunteers have worked hard to breathe new life into the museum decor and displays. We currently are featuring a multi-media Bicentennial Display featuring many interesting items from our Town’s celebration 40 years ago! Did you know our  barn is on the National Historic Register and is one of few brick barns ever built in New England?  It is also a museum itself, housing antique farming tools and equipment along with horse drawn carriages! Who knew? Now is your chance to be in the know and learn all about our Town’s history!!  You will be amazed! The Historical Society will be giving tours of the Noden-Reed Museum between 11 and 3 on Sunday, October 2nd. Enter at the  rear of the museum. Tours are $2 for adults, $1 for students/seniors. Children under 12 will be admitted free with an adult. Historical Society Members in good standing are always free.  See you there!

Please note: The October Family Festival is cancelled due to rain. The Noden-Reed Museum and Barn will be open 11-3.
