Field trip was to a private home in Lexington, Massachusetts. Given that a green house was visible in the background and that I speculated that it was Morash's when Episodes 911 & 912 (the Green House—also 2111 & 2112 in the 2009 season) were filmed, it's a fair bet that this was Morash's home, too.
New material for this project filmed on 16 July 2008.
This episode was processed based on the full length original broadcast by PBS.
