The Buell Tool Museum contains a wealth of examples of early colonial tools and machines used by the Buell family whose ancestors were among Clinton's first settlers. The barn itself was previously located on the Buell family property on Glenwood Road. It was donated to the Clinton Historical Society in 1998 and moved to its present location by a group of volunteers who carefully dismantled the timbers and stones and then brought them, bit by bit, to the grounds of Old Brick where the barn was reconstructed. Today, the Tool Museum serves as a window into the past, allowing CHS to show visitors just how much was accomplished by hand, before the age of power tools and machines.
