Additional Details:
"Storrowton", one of the chief centers of attraction for the thousands of tourists visiting New England, is a New England Colonial Village, situated on the Eastern States Exposition grounds in West Springfield, Mass. It is the Headquarters of the Exposition's Home Department. The Buildings are all original structures true to type, and have been transported from various sections of New England, re-erected and restored with the purpose of perpetuating for all time the best and early New England architecture. The Village compreises a church, mansion, lawyer's office, red brick school-house, stone blacksmith shop, farmhouse, tavern and store, Cape Cod Cottage, town hall and barn. The surrounding grounds are landscaped attractively, with broad gravel walks and old-fashioned gardens. The buildings face a typical green or common, with the church dominating the group from its site on a rising knoll
