Deerfield Descendants

Join Deerfield Descendants!

Can you trace your ancestors to the Pocumtuck Valley? The families of Deerfield are at the center of the history of this special place, and as a Deerfield Descendant you can play an important role in keeping your family’s legacy alive.

  • Visit the museum houses where the daily lives of your ancestors are illustrated in stories, furnishings, and architecture

  • Walk the mile-long Street and experience the ambiance of a prosperous New England village in the 18th and early 19th century

  • Find the names of your relatives on headstones in the Old Burying Ground on Albany Road

  • Discover artifacts from local families in the Museum’s Attic at the Flynt Center of Early New England Life

  • Stroll through the fields that were once cultivated by your ancestors

  • Examine original documents and read first-hand accounts of local residents – perhaps members of your family – in the Memorial Libraries

  • Share your Deerfield heritage with your children and grandchildren
