Other exhibits include the Cobleigh Tavern, carriages, a reproduction of a local blacksmith's shop, and an extensive hand tool collection. Adjacent to the main display in the Carriage Barn is a model kitchen in which a black wood-fired stove is the focal point surrounded by a plethora of kitchen utensils in homemade cupboards.
