The Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum is hosting a South Hadley Community Day on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Because the museum tells not only the story of the family or Hadley, but of the whole Connecticut River Valley, museum staff feels it’s especially important to engage with local the surrounding towns, including South Hadley.
All residents are welcome for free tours on the half hour. Visitors of all ages are welcome. Due to the historic nature of the home, it is not accessible for all.
Afterward, guests can relax on the back veranda with complimentary lemonade and cookies, or explore the homestead and grounds of one of the founding families of Hadley.
Visitors are also encouraged to walk the hiking trails that circle a portion of the 1752 farm and include 350 acres of preserved land. A part of the Connecticut River Scenic Byway Project, these trails cover Porter-Phelps-Huntington property, move along the scenic Connecticut River, and extend to Hadley’s Mount Warner. Click here
