The mission of Deerfield’s Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, reflecting the history of New England as well as that of the nation, is focused on preserving and communicating the multi-cultural history of the Connecticut and Deerfield River Valleys, with emphasis on “old Hampshire County,” and present day Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden Counties. The Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits cultural artifacts made and/or used in the region. These collections are maintained both for the enrichment of the general public and as research tools for scholars.
