HADLEY – The Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum announces a change in the hours of operation for the fall season. Starting on September 6th, through the museum’s closing on October 15th, the museum will be open for tours Friday-Tuesday, from 1-4 pm. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children under 12. Guided tours are approximately an hour long.
The Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum is located at 130 River Drive (Route 47) in Hadley, two miles north of the junction of Routes 9 and 47. The house, which remains unchanged since the family’s occupancy, tells the story of six generations of prominent Hadley residents. The family, prosperous traders turned farmers, fought in both the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars, rose to prominence in local government, and embodied a consistently progressive social consciousness. Tours highlight both local and regional narratives, from architecture, material culture, and labor, to early-American theology, economics, women’s history and social movements.
