Welcome to the Woodruff House and Eaton Store Museum Web site
The Woodruff House
The Woodruff House and Eaton Store Museum is operated and maintained by the Hillside Historical Society. Purchased by the Society in 1978, the house has been faithfully restored to its original grandeur. The Woodruff House is unique in that it spans 3 centuries in one structure. From the original 1735 building, to the 1790 addition, to the 1890's kitchen all the way to the 1900's store. The society has also added to the grounds an authentic post and beam Barn, a Phil Rizutto and All Sports Museum honoring the Hillside legend as well as an archive to house the many documents the society has obtained over the years.
Please use the links under virtual tour to the left to explore each section of this truly unique historical landmark.
The Woodruff House Open the 3rd Sunday of each Month, 2-4pm and by appointment.
