Feel the warmth of the inn’s rustic charm while adorned with natural autumn accents, cheery glowing wood fires, and the flickering of candles in every room. Throughout the cozy, candlelit tour, you will experience the challenging but fulfilling life of the Armors. Along the way, you’ll be guided through the 1820’s cookhouse. Step back in time with Compass Inn Museum’s masters of open hearth and beehive oven cookery. There, experience the sights and smells of scrumptious food being prepared, using recipes and ingredients inspired by the cuisine of the 18th and 19th centuries. At the end of your tour, relax by the warm crackling fire glowing in the 1862 Room’s Rumford fireplace. Even before President Abraham Lincoln declared the 4th Thursday of November Thanksgiving in 1863, American celebrations of the holiday stretch back to the 17th century. A combination of giving thanks for a bountiful harvest and the Puritan religious traditions, Thanksgiving eventually developed into the family and community holiday that we know today.
