Programs Fundraising Wish List

An important part of the mission of the Bidwell House Museum is to provide a personal encounter with history and early American life.  We accomplish this in a number of ways via programming, guided tours and education.  The Museum has a series of youth programs, both old and new, that take place inside the historic house and on the 192 acres of gardens and grounds.  In 2018 the Museum introduced a new Native American Interpretive Trail on the grounds that allows us to tell the story of the land long before the arrival of Adonijah Bidwell.  Also in 2018 the Museum expanded programming, adding music and performance to the schedule.  It costs the Museum over $20,000 a year to provide engaging and educational programming and we depend on all of the members and friends who so generously donate the museum each year. Every dollar contributed to these programs helps a local student learn about the history of the Berkshires, allows guests to experience life in an 18th-century house and encourages all visitors to appreciate all the ways in which the land was used then and now. You can read the graphics below for details about the education programs that are vital to the mission of the museum, the 2018 programs and see a sample of the new Native American Trail signage.
