Arrowhead Community Day
Sep 17 Sat @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a day of free activities and fun celebrating local history!
Architectural tours of Arrowhead’s historic buildings will be offered throughout the day and the grounds will be open for hiking. In addition, a small presentation in the barn explores the sixty-year history of BCHS including highlights from past events, exhibits, and more. The presentation will feature highlights from the BCHS collection that are not normally on view.
BCHS will also welcome representatives from the Bidwell House who will discuss their work and mission and The Crane Museum of Paper Making and the Paper Arts who will assist visitors with papermaking and printing activities. They will be joined by our friends from the Baseball in the Berkshires Museum, whose mission is to present exhibits and educational programs that will assist in telling the story of Baseball in the Berkshires.
The Worthington, Massachusetts food truck Worthy-Que Smoke N’BBQ will be on hand offering smoked meats, fish, and homemade unique eats using farm fresh local ingredients. The Berkshire Cider Project, based in North Adams, will conduct tastings of their dry and sparkling ciders.
