Display at Casey Farm

In addition to portraits and photographs of the Casey family, the display in the farm’s museum room now combines older artifacts discovered at the property with contemporary work by Indigenous artists affiliated with the Tomaquag Museum. The 200-year-old shoe soles pictured above were found in the walls of the farmhouse. They lie near deerskin moccasins made in 2018 by Silvermoon LaRose for her son.
