FEATURES
"New England; Where Our Past Began, Our Future Begins," is the theme of this exhibit which is a reconstruction of a typical New England Village. A centeral aspect is the Village Green upon which a series of community events portray aspects of New England life. Surrounding the green are the six state pavilions, a Central Theme Building, the Court of Industry and Commerce, a typical country store and the Millstone Restaurant - Cocktail Loung which specializes in New England dishes.
 
Events schedules for the Village Green are presented by individual communites throughout the six states and include musical performances, displays and demonstrations by master craftsmen and re-enactment of historical events.
 
One of the special attractions is a tribute to the late President John F. Kennedy, through the use of an exhibit that involves pictorial displays of the places associated with his life in New England. The display shows President Kennedy in an historic line of New England presidents.
 
Private industry in New England sponsors a major presentation of the region's leadership in a wide variety of fields from agriculture, through insurance and banking to medicine and space-age technology. The Court of Industry and Commerce also features projections of the electronic marvels of the future.
