July 10 through October
This exhibition, located both in our small barn and in the main house, examines mid-19th century rituals and objects related to death and dying in the Berkshires and beyond. Lifting the Veil looks at the historic practices surrounding death, burial, and those left behind. BCHS collections will be featured in this exhibit, including objects not regularly on view to the public.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Pittsfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
