Thornton W. Burgess Museum

On our last day in Massachusetts, we visited the Thornton Burgess Museum on the shores of Shawme Pond in Sandwich, MA. The morning glories surrounding the sign where absolutely beautiful. The lady in charge did a great job in giving the kids quite a bit of background information about Thornton Burgess. If you have young children and have never read any of his books you might want to check them out. We also got to see some of the original artwork of Harrison Cady that was done for Burgess' books.
