Deerfield at the end of the 17th century bore little resemblance to what is here today. Fewer than 50 families lived in small houses with one or two-rooms and a garret, clustered within and around a protective stockade. Their dwellings provided modest living space and a place to store crops, marketable commodities such as furs and lumber, and farming tools. Only the wealthiest owned luxury goods such as a clock, refined textiles, or perhaps several silver spoons. This exhibition features objects drawn from Historic Deerfield’s collection, many with local histories. On view through February 17, 2013.
