For 20 years, volunteers have been making beautiful, handmade natural holiday wreaths for the doors of the historic houses of Deerfield. This year, 52 volunteers made 59 wreaths to hang on the doors of 31 buildings along Old Main Street in Deerfield.
If you are visiting Historic Deerfield in December and the beginning of January, we encourage you to take the Deerfield Wreath Walk! Each year, we create a guide to all of the wreaths on each house, giving visitors the opportunity to explore the Street and learn about the wreaths, the unique materials, and the volunteers who made them.
This year’s Wreath Walk includes a special map in the guide with each building with a wreath numbered to make it easy for visitors to find the wreaths they want to see.
Guides can be picked up at the Old Deerfield Post Office, The Deerfield Inn, and the Historic Deerfield Museum Gift Shop & Bookstore. You can also download your copy before you visit: (PDF)
