Date: Sunday’s July 2nd, 9th & 16th    from 5:00 to 7:00 pm

Enjoy a special guided evening walking tour along Old Main Street that explores life in a small town during the American Revolution. Incorporating music and stories from the period, this special tour looks at the experience of Revolution in lives of ordinary people, both Patriot and Loyalist. It highlights the experience of women, enslaved people, and others often left out of the story of the Revolution. As one Deerfielder lamented, “all nature seems to be in confusion; every person in fear of what his neighbor will do to him. Such times were never seen in New England.”

The guided walking tours begin at 5:00 p.m. and depart every 15 minutes from the Visitor Center at Hall Tavern. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets for the tours are $10 per person. 

Dinner from the full summer menu at Champney’s Restaurant and Tavern at the Deerfield Inn will be discounted 20% on entrees with purchase of the Sunday Summer Stroll ticket. Dinner is not required for participating in the tour. Reservations are recommended for one-hour after the start time of your tour and may be made by calling (413) 774-5587.
