19th century comes to Taylor Farm; early registration open for Chester LEGO contest

A STEP BACK IN TIME On Saturday, Feb. 1, the Steady Habits Travelers, a group of 19th century re-enactors from Connecticut and Massachusetts, got together at the Taylor Farm in Londonderry for horse-drawn sleigh rides through the fields and into the woods of the 600-acre property. The group gets together every few months to dress in period costumes and partake in the lighter side of life in New England as it was 1860, ice skating and playing croquet and parlor games.
