The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on, and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we've come with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two adult admissions to Greenbank Mills and Philips Farm (a $14 value).

The area’s only living history museum with a focus on the New Republic Era from 1790 to 1830, Greenbank Mills and Philips Farm pulls the wool away from visitors’ eyes to reveal the development of grain and textile milling in America. Two breeds of sheep, leicester longwools and delane merinos, call Greenbank home, and visitors can follow sheepish locks from shearing through dyeing, as textile transmogrifiers spin them into gossamer strands destined for warm winter shawls and giant webs designed to ensnare skateboarders. Or guests can delve into Greenbank's 300-year history as a working mill by grinding grain by hand into floury heaps of summer snow.

Greenbank harbors heritage livestock and a variety of heirloom gardens, including dye, medicinal, and kitchen, and the farmhouse’s period lighting and memory foam-free rope beds provide a peek into 19th-century living. The Philips family also welcomes extra hands for help with daily chores such as weaving, baking, and candlestick making, after which diligent laborers can join in on period-accurate entertainment such as heritage dancing and rap battles.
