Historic Speedwell

Today, seven-and-a-half acres of the mid 19th-century original estate remain and contain a reconstructed factory building, the facility where Vail and Samuel Morse first tested the electric telegraph, a granary featuring exhibits on early farm machinery, and a 1849 carriage house.

We hope you enjoy our work.
