Samuel Daggett held many jobs, like many other people in the community. Sometimes he even pulled teeth.

Each member of the Daggett family played and important role in producing food, clothing and other goods on this Colonial farm.
In order to provide for his family, Samuel Daggett did a variety of things. He worked the family farm, built houses and made furniture. His wife, Anna, spun yarn, made clothing, fed the animals and taught their children how to read and write. Like other families in this area of Connecticut, the Daggetts used, sold or traded items they made for those they needed.
Built in 1754 in Andover, Connecticut.
 
Erected by The Henry Ford.
