A visit to Historic Deerfield is not complete unless you have explored the many outdoor activities that are available up and down the street, along with other places of interest to discover while you are here.
The Channing Blake Footpath offers visitors the opportunity to discover Deerfield's landscape, so integral to the village and its prosperity for nearly 350 years. The Cooks' Garden features plants that would have been used during Colonial times and are used in Historic Deerfield's Open Hearth Cooking Demonstrations. Further down the street, the public is invited to tour the Old Burying Ground during daylight hours.
Be sure to stop by The 1884 Deerfield Inn and Champney's Restaurant & Tavern, newly renovated and restored after being devastated by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011. Next door to the Inn is Historic Deerfield's Museum Gift Shop & Bookstore - dedicated to the curious shopper and the discriminating browser, you'll find a unique assortment of American crafts, jewelry, and reproductions as well as souvenirs. In addition, our bookshop features thousands of titles on art, history, craft, and architecture-many that you can’t find online. Our toy and book section offers old-fashioned fun for children of all ages. Free gift wrapping, too!
