Oakwood Farm Christmas Barn
Our 153-year-old barn, now home to many thousands of Christmas ornaments and every variety of holiday decoration, was once home to 4,000 chickens! One year, long after the last chicken left its roost, we decided to sell the Christmas trees that had matured in the field out back.
The trees were such a big hit, we added decorated wreaths, cetery baskets and birch log centerpieces. Soon we were punching tin ornaments and turning every square inch of the barn into a Christmas Boutique. By the mid-1980s, the shop had grown into what it is today, an extraordinary menagerie of unique and beautiful ornaments and collectibles. Jim Devereux invites you to "Order on line" if you can not visit in person, but he really likes you to visit him and "Clancy" at the barn.
Keep Homestead Museum
35 Ely Road
Monson, MA 01057
When Myra Keep Lovell Moulton died in 1988, the last of a long line of Keeps in Monson, she willed her property, its contents and an endowment fund to the town. She was an avid collector and her button collection is considered one of the largest in the US. She mastered many forms of needlework and many of her works are on isplay, as are examples of her work in oil, water color and ceramics. History was also important to Myra and the museum contains many examples of this interest: history of her family, her town, her church, rocks and minerals of the area -- to name only a few.
Open House: 1st Sunday of each month 1:00-3:00pm from early April to December. Nature tours frequently available with former National Park Service naturalist
Special request tours are available by calling or e-mailing.
