We are located in the village of Deerfield, Massachusetts, but as the earliest historical society in the region, people from throughout Franklin County—as well as Hampshire and Hampden counties—entrusted their family stories to the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association. From fossils of dinosaur tracks to 20th century artifacts, this extraordinary collection continues to be enhanced by both donations and purchases.
