  • This is such a wonderful historic experience to have. Definitely a place to bring your family as well. My husband and I walked all along the street with all the beautiful old houses, we visited this gorgeous farm walking trail & saw the happiest, galloping, playful cows 🐄🐃 they were definitely my favorite part. We also visited this very pretty, ancient cemetery on the top of an old hill,overlooking the high-school playing field. Definitely a must see
  • If you are into historic houses this is the place to visit in Massachusetts. Did a few tours of the homes and the guides were fantastic.
  • Wife is the family genealogist and wanted to track down the story of her seventh generation Grandmother, Hannah Stebbins as one of the 47 people to pass during the Indian/French Raid. John Sheldon is her same generation Grandfather. The historical area was abundant in answers as many museums, burial grounds and more gave us a taste of an important time. The preservation of artifacts, sites, homesteads, buildings and more was amazing! THANKS OLD DEERFIELD!!!
  • Great experience for history buffs and anyone interested in old architecture and restoration.
  • Quaint little historic village with an Inn and Restaurant and antique store… all intermingled into historic homes and the well-known prep school. The tour guide was outstanding, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI is impossible to beat in this genre, but this was a nice sojourn.
