along for show and tell. A new exhibit area featuring 1950’s items

While you’re walking the trail at Carpenter Park be sure to look for
the fairy houses. Enter the parking lot and walk the trail on the
left and before you reach the bridge you will find 10 tiny houses.
They were built from natural materials: ferns, flowers, grasses,
bark, pinecones, nuts and more. You will be amazed at the
creativity you will see in these little homes. People are allowed to
make repairs on houses that need it. Feel free to keep them in good
repair for the fairies living at the park. The fairy building party
was hosted by the Chichester Town Library on Sat. Oct. 26th.
