Tracing Histories on the Landscape
April 28 at 10:00 am–12:00 pm
Before it is officially open for the season, visit the Bidwell House Museum for a special guided tour of the gardens and grounds with board president and land-use expert Robert Hoogs. As you explore the Native American presence that pre-dated early settler history–this was not the “howling wilderness” often portrayed–you can consider how Mohicans lived on this land for centuries before and after the English settlers. Sitting on 192 acres, this tour will show you some of the 4 miles of forest trails along with stone walls and artifacts built on the Bidwell grounds by farmers in the 18th and 19th centuries. This special guided tour of the grounds will be a fascinating look at the land and how the Berkshire upland forest has been used and maintained for many centuries.
