Victorian Garden
The Stanstead Historical Society has developed a garden inspired by Carrollcroft’s nineteenth-century gardens and opened it to the public. Visitors can stroll the walkways or relax on one of the garden benches. There are beautiful peonies, irises, roses and other old-fashioned flowers to admire.
Carriage House & Mansur School
In the carriage house next to Carrollcroft house, visitors can explore many of the Society’s larger, more rustic artifacts, including agricultural implements and tools from various trades, sleighs and a rare and admired Concord stagecoach, built about 1870 and fully restored. The Stanstead Historical Society was founded in 1929 in the century old school house –the Mansur School House– a historic landmark that remains under the Society’s care. The Mansur school was built in 1819 as a wooden structure, by 1844 it had become a brick building. The school was built on land donated by Daniel Mansur. The area where the school was located was referred to as “The Center” and was thickly populated during the 19th century. The Mansur School is located on route 143 in Stanstead East.
