Dr. Jackson’s office in Westford

By: Erin Crissman, Curator

On the way to collect a loom for The Farmers’ Museum’s collection (more on this in a future post), we passed through Westford, NY, the original home of Dr. Jackson’s office. Although it was not always next to the Westford General Store, that was the office’s last location when The Farmers' Museum took possession of it in the 1950s. The General Store looks much the same as it did when Mr. Whipple’s tow truck pulled it westward to Cooperstown. You can see the Greek columns on the store’s front in this picture, and in this one, the small addition in the back and the neighboring residence. All that is missing is the gas pump!
