New England Village Series
In its diversity, there is also its charm. The northeastern corner of the country contains the six states jointly known as New England. Blazing colors of autumn grace the pages of innumerable calendars, but nature’s glory is only part of New England’s fame. It is not an overlooked part, though, for Autumn Birches and Maples enhance many displays, and the accompanying activity of Tapping the Maples is another highlight. Some of the recent village pieces lack snow, further enabling collectors to create year round scenes.
Agriculture once dominated the area, and multiple barns, farmhouses, and livestock depict that segment of the region’s past. Even cranberry bogs are represented. Equally a part of the area’s history and economy was the maritime industry. The Atlantic’s waters provide livelihood to Lobster Trappers, boat builders, and fish canneries. Its rugged coast accounts for the several lighthouses that have been captured in miniature. An expanding Seaside Series enables collectors to truly develop this aspect of New England life.
The rushing streams generated power for the start of America’s industrial age, a period captured in the imposing Smythe Woolen Mill. Many New England towns grew up around these economic centers. If the mills were one symbol of the area in the 1800’s, another was certainly its churches. Vivid scenes of fall foliage often include the stately white steeple of a local church. Church bazaars were a highlight for these small towns, loosely connected by rail stations, but strongly unified by the work ethic and patriotic spirit such as that demonstrated by Paul Revere.
