Asher Benjamin Society


The Asher Benjamin Society, named for one of the early 19th century’s most influential practitioners of domestic architecture in the Connecticut River Valley, recognizes members making gifts at the leadership level to support the full range of Historic Deerfield’s preservation, research, and education activities.

Categories for support are named for Asher Benjamin’s popular pattern books:

Country Builder’s Assistant           $1,000
American Builder’s Companion    $2,000
Practical House Carpenter             $5,000
The Architect                                  $10,000 or more

Asher Benjamin Society members are invaluable to Historic Deerfield, providing support for our efforts to preserve our historic houses, conserve rare museum collections, present exhibitions at the Flynt Center of Early American Life, and increase public awareness of America’s story.

Members of the Asher Benjamin Society are provided with all of the standard membership privileges, as well as multiple reusable guest passes, invitations to “behind the scenes” tours and special events, and recognition of their leadership gifts at our most prestigious event, the Annual Awards Dinner.
