Belchertown Historical Association is charged with maintaining the Stone House Museum and property. This includes the 1827 field stone Federalist Colonial home, a field stone barn paid for by Henry Ford and the Blackmer building, the original home of the Belchertown Sentinel. The museum is open for tours Saturdays, 2 - 5, from mid May to mid October. There is an off season lecture series, free and open to the public as well as a number of special events such as Living History Day.                                                                                                                            

We are very fortunate to be receiving the Washington Street School this spring. It is the last one room school house in Belchertown. It will be moving to the Stone House grounds in August. Not surprisingly, the cost of moving the school from south Belchertown to the Stone House property, the new foundation and the extensive renovations required to preserve the school and maintain it will require $150,000.  The school house will be set up like it was. Our collection already includes desks, chalk boards, a school clock and school bell from Belchertown one room school houses (there were 20 of them). It will not just be a display space, but also the location for our fall/winter lecture series and many hands on activities for children.                                                                                                                                                             Please help us achieve our goals to preserve this important piece of history for future generations. Thank you.
