Celebrating the Fiber Arts: The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery

The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery showcases Historic Deerfield's important collection of fashion, needlework, and domestic textiles. The core of the collection was assembled through the efforts of one of the museum's founders, Helen Geier Flynt (1895-1986). Considered one of the finest collections in America, the collection contains items dating from the late 17th century through the mid-20th century.

Dressed Rehearsal: Fashion as Performance

Formal and informal clothing, accessories, make up, hair care, and perfume or cologne, all contribute to our self-fashioning, and the impressions we give to others. Historic Deerfield explores this concept in a special, 8-week fall exhibition of early 19th-century clothing and accessories. Examples of men’s and women’s dress from the collection will be on view in the Stebbins House and Williams House in September and October of 2018.

Open Hearth Cooking Demonstration: Tavern Fare

Colonial New England taverns were common in both small towns and cities. They were a welcome sight for travelers who could stop for a drink and a hot meal. Local people went to taverns to catch up on town news, see friends, have a drink or transact business. Taverns were known for their hearty meals rather than fine dining. Come see the 1786 kitchen at the Hall Tavern and see what’s on the Bill of Fare for the day.
