Norman Rockwell Museum, located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, holds the world’s largest and most significant collection of original works by Norman Rockwell. Rockwell’s paintings reflected American society and influenced generations of illustrators. He chronicled life in the United States during most of the 20th century and showed us America’s fundamental ideals of democracy, freedom, and human dignity. His paintings continue to touch people in a way that transcends age and culture. The Museum is dedicated to Rockwell’s legacy, and shows how his work fits into the greater scheme of modern culture and illustration and his endurance as an important artist and an American icon. Tour Rockwell’s Stockbridge studio, open seasonally, located on our scenic 36 acre grounds.
In 1774, Mother Ann Lee led eight Shaker converts from Manchester, England, to America, seeking freedom to live, work, and worship. The Shakers believed in racial and gender equality, simplicity, and pacifism. One of the most intriguing religious movements in American history, the Shakers are considered by many to be the most successful of utopian societies that have flourished in this country. The Shakers have made important contributions to American culture including art, architecture, craftsmanship, music, government, agriculture, and commerce. Hancock Shaker Village, a National Historic Landmark, brings the Shaker story to life and preserves it for future generations. Visit Hancock Shaker Village and be inspired by the principled living and extraordinary lives of the Shakers in America. Learn more at http://www.HancockShakerVillage.org… or call 413.443.0188.
Edith Wharton was America’s First Lady of Letters during the early years of the 20th century. She was an enormously popular author in her own day and her works are still read throughout the world. Not only was she the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (The Age of Innocence, 1921), she was the first woman given an honorary doctorate from Yale University. When she designed and built The Mount, her Lenox, Massachusetts home, in 1902, it was with the same attention to detail and elegance she used in her writing. Open daily from May through October, The Mount’s classically proportioned interiors, inviting formal gardens, and 50 acres of gracious woodlands appeal to visitors young and old.
