Small old house

It was nice to see the effort Mable Choate put into restoring this historic colonial house even if all the details are not historically accurate.

This site is operated by The Trustees of Reservations. It used to be open more, but with budget issues I am guessing, you need to check the times of operation.

This is not a large site but it is interesting and thoroughly charming. While exhibits man not be the original items they give some sense of the history of the place and early Stockbridge. Most rewarding.

Very interesting and the guide is very knowledgeable. He was closing as we arrived but he stayed open and gave us a very through tour. Furnishings are not original but authentic. Kudos to the House Manager for his tour.
