    If you're a history buff or teaching your children, this is a must visit place. The area is rich with the history of early settlers and their encounters with the Native Americans. An interesting read before your visit is "The Boy Captive of Old Deerfield" by Mary P. Smith which will make your visit even more meaningful.

    Beautiful and mind blowing historical gem. The docents who give tours are very knowledgeable and generous with their time when the village is not busy. Even just an hour or two are enough to get new insights on history.
