The historic Allaire Village was known as the Howell Works in the early 19th century. At that time it was a thriving industrial community which produced pig and cast iron. The buildings which remain today include a general store, blacksmith shop, carpenters shop, managers house, foremans house and a church. One of the workers' row house buildings is now the Visitor Center and Museum. You will also be able to ride the train that is located just next to the village.
