Through the words, spaces, and possessions of three generations of women, the Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum portrays the activities of a wealthy and productive 18th-century household, known as “Forty Acres.” The household was an important social and commercial link in the local, regional, and even national networks of its day. The property is surrounded by 350 acres of protected farm land, including frontage on the Connecticut River.
During the summer months, the museum presents cultural programs, including Ethnic Folk Music and The Perfect Spot of Tea Series, which is held on a veranda overlooking the Connecticut River and showcases area talent with “earl grey” and pastries.
