Bidwell House has worked with the Stockbridge-Munsee community to creatively blend the history of the European settlers to the southern Berkshires with the ways in which the Mohicans interacted with the land, plants and animals of this region. Rob Hoogs will lead participants along the Native American trail at Bidwell House, to explore agricultural and forestry practices, the wigwams used during the hunting season, and the traces of Native life found on the property.

Participants may choose to stay and take a tour of the Bidwell House itself at 1:00 pm (admission for the tour is $10 for seniors).  If you are interested in the tour of Bidwell house, please preregister directly with Bidwell House.
This tour involves walking on uneven ground, sloping land and may not be suitable for all.  The walking tour will be two hours.
