The Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum was started in 1991 by Bud and Nancy Thompson, Bud was also the sparkplugs behind the establishment of Canterbury Shaker Village. The Museum is the result of Bud Thompson's life-long interest in the American Indian, which began with a visit to his second grade class from Grand Sachem Chief Silver Star, leader of the Paucatuck Eastern Pequot Indians of Connecticut. This respect for the earth and all living things upon it became the guiding principal of the Museum.
