"The Museum preserves the heritage of the mechanical arts, celebrates the ingenuity of our mechanical forebears, and explores the effects of their work on our everyday lives. The American Precision Museum, housed in the original Robbins & Lawrence Armory, now holds the largest collection of historically significant machine tools in the nation.

Precision manufacturing touches us all. Without it, we would not have the mass communication, rapid transportation, modern standards of sanitation and medical care, abundant food and clothing, or the leisure for universal education.

The tools and the methods which make mass production possible were pioneered at the Robbins & Lawrence Armory in Windsor, Vermont. Using precision metal and wood cutting machines and high standards of accuracy, Robbins & Lawrence proved the effectiveness of a new type of manufacturing that would soon be known as the American System. Across America, a powerful machine tool industry grew up, flourishing especially in New England and the northern Midwest. Today, even in the age of plastics and microprocessors, the concept of precision manufacturing provides the foundation for modern industry around the world.

"After the original station suffered extensive damage in a fire, the Central Vermont Railway built this present Windsor depot in 1901. Its wide overhang was designed to protect passengers from inclement weather as they waited on the platform for the arrival of the train. The trackside bay (our Station Master Dining Room), canted with windows on all three elevations, gave the station master an unobstructed view down the right-of-way so that he could monitor traffic on the rails. To the north, a wide canopy extended from the station along the platform to shelter workers as they transferred baggage and parcels from the trains to the freight room (our current kitchen). Barre granite from Vermont was used for trim such as the window sills. Built to a standard design costing $10,000, the rectangular depot featured separate waiting rooms for men (our barroom) and women (our main dining room) that reflected Victorian sensibilities about the mixing of the sexes in public places. Birch veneer seating, electric lights and a hot water heater completed the thoroughly modern interior. The station was restored in the late 1970s and was at that time converted into a restaurant..."

It was purchased and renovated by the Capurso family in April 2013
