Welcome to Historic Deerfield
Spend a day in old New England. Visit Historic Deerfield, an authentic 18th-century New England village in the Connecticut River Valley of Massachusetts. Tour beautifully restored museum houses with period architecture and furnishings. See yankee ingenuity at work in demonstrations of colonial-era trades. And explore our world-famous collection of early American crafts, ceramics, furniture, textiles and metalwork. It’s a celebration of New England heritage.
“The people were incredible, the museum a gem… Thank you so much for a truly wonderful experience.”
- Scott F. from East Hampton, CT
