Collections

Historic Deerfield's significance rests in the preservation of original, authentic, centuries-old buildings and nationally significant collections of household goods - 28,000 artifacts both rare and common. These include furniture, metalwares, textiles, needlework, ceramics, and more - some created here and nearby, some in urban centers that set the bar for taste, some brought here as part of the trade with England and China. All of these authentic objects document the stories and founding years of our nation. View the sections below for a look at each collection category.  You can also search our collection through the Five Colleges and Historic Deerfield Museum Consortium database at http://museums.fivecolleges.edu/
