Retracing Native Histories - A Walk Through Time

The Bidwell House Museum is excited to once again host an event during Artweek! Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek is an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring more than 500 unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes experiences. ArtWeek was born in Boston in 2013 and now serves over 100 towns across MA as the signature nonprofit community program of the Boch Center. Long before the English arrived in what is now MA, the Mohicans lived on and worked with the land for thousands of years.   During this walk through history, join Rob Hoogs to learn how the Mohicans used the local landscape for hunting, agriculture, maple sugaring and more. As you hike some of the four miles of trails on the 192 acre Bidwell House Museum property, the quiet beauty of the Berkshire upland forest will transport you to another time and place, creating a greater understanding of life in these woods hundreds of years ago. Please note that the parking area and area in front of the Museum are accessible but the trails are not. Please dress for a hike and bring water or a snack. The walk will happen in light rain or shine, however if a heavy downpour is predicted, the rain date will be Sunday April 27 at 1pm.

Tracing Histories on the Landscape

Before it is officially open for the season, visit the Bidwell House Museum for a special guided tour of the gardens and grounds with board president and land-use expert Robert Hoogs.  As you explore the Native American presence that pre-dated early settler history–this was not the “howling wilderness” often portrayed–you can consider how Mohicans lived on this land for centuries before and after the English settlers. Sitting on 192 acres, this tour will show you some of the 4 miles of forest trails along with stone walls and artifacts built on the Bidwell grounds by farmers in the 18th and 19th centuries.  This special guided tour of the grounds will be a fascinating look at the land and how the Berkshire upland forest has been used and maintained for many centuries.
