Historic Deerfield Village

Museum in Deerfield

The main street of Historic Deerfield Village escaped the ravages of time and now presents a noble prospect: a dozen houses dating from the 1700s and 1800s, well preserved and filled with period furnishings that reflect their original occupants. There's also a museum stuffed with artifacts, several active workshops and a walking path through a working farm. In various buildings you might see (and try) old-fashioned cooking, woodworking or farming techniques.

If you're just passing through, it costs nothing to stroll Old Main St and admire the historic buildings from the outside, stroll through the farmland or visit the centuries-old cemetery.
