Berkshire 18th Century Trail – an interpretive trail of 18th century houses open to the public in the Berkshires.There are six such properties, including the Bidwell House, and all agreed to be supporting partners for the grant project: Berkshire Historical Society at Arrowhead in Pittsfield, the Trustees of Reservations properties Mission House in Stockbridge, and Ashley House in Sheffield, the Sheffield Historical Society’s Dan Raymond House, and the Great Barrington Historical Society’s Captain Wheeler House.
Trail-goers are encouraged to travel to each of these historic properties using the brochure as a guide. It provides a map, background stories, photos, contact information, fees, and addresses. A visit to the website offers a deeper look, with additional photos and information about each location.
