Northfield, Massachusetts and neighboring towns of Gill and Bernardston lie at the intersection of Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire on both sides of the majestic Connecticut River.
Across the wide flood plain, the land rises on the east and west to form miles and miles of rolling hills and state forest. In the 17th century, the area was one of the earliest places English settlers explored after arriving here from Europe. The grand homes they built in Northfield create one of the most dramatic and classic streetscapes found anywhere in New England. The area's considerable natural and man-made beauty foster numerous outdoor activities, local agriculture and a lively and growing arts community that offers special events throughout the year. Centrally located literally in the heart of New England, our three towns comprise an ideal base from which to experience the lively and scenic Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts
Whether you begin your own exploration of our area from points north, from Boston and Albany via Route 2, or up from Connecticut, New York and points south on Interstate 91, you will know immediately that you have entered a special place. The strikingly beautiful landscape, the range of recreational activities available and the area's rich culture, artistry and history, coupled with a slower pace and country charm, are here to savor and enjoy again and again.
EXHIBIT: A Child's World
Till May 31, 2013 - Old Sturbridge Village
In the early 19th century, there was an increasing awareness of "childhood" as separate from infancy, yet distinctly different from young adulthood and maturity.
This exhibit will explore the changing world of childhood during the first half of the 19th century through their toys, their clothes, and their work.
