Objects:

The full collection of Historic Fallsington, Incorporated (HFI) contains some 3800 objects.The objects help us tell the stories of those who lived and worked here from the founding of the village by Quakers in the late seventeenth century to the present day. Those stories are full of rich economic, social, and political diversity. Exhibited and stored in our three historic buildings, we show how some of those individuals and families may have participated in local and regional activities typical of their respective eras using three-dimensional objects in our collection buttressed by details discovered in the HFI archives.
