Today Wilma and I Adventured to Historic Deerfield in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Historic Deerfield is a Museum dedicated to the history of Deerfield and the Connecticut River Valley. There are approximately 11 historic homes from the 18th and 19th centruy. Historic Deerfield also has museums, a shop, and offers tours and educational programs.
We had a fun Adventure to Historic Deerfield. Due to COVID Historic Deerfield is officially closed however this did not change our visit as the indoors of this Village are not dog-friendly when open. We began our morning by viewing a large map posted outside the visitors center. This map gave me an idea of where all the historic buildings were located so we did not miss a piece of history. The street was very charming, the historic buildings scattered between private homes and other buildings but yet all restored to 18th and 19th century architecture.
We walked and walked, but also took time to sit in the shade to refresh. My favorite aspects of the village included: the Wells-Thorn House – unique blue in color, the various lanterns, the Moors House – framed with lattice, the numerous adorning fences, and the little architecture features throughout. Wilma loved her summer rolls, searching for squirrels, lounging in the shade and posing grandly. An Adventure filled with walking with a historic view! We really enjoyed exploring Historic Deerfield today (Rating: Historic Deerfield will not be rated as only the grounds could be explored).
