Stockbridge was founded in 1737 as a mission and unique partnership with the Mohican.  English leaders taught the Mohicans English, and about Christianity and English agricultural practices while the Mohicans remained self-governing.

The Stockbridge-Munsee community worked with Housatonic Heritage and other local partners to create a tour of the most important Mohican sites along Stockbridge’s main street. OLLI members, trained by one of the creators of the walking tour, will lead participants along Main Street to learn about the Mohicans who lived in Stockbridge for 50 years and aspects of their culture which are still present today. Stops include the Carriage Barn at the Mission House, the burial ground and the site of the 2021 archeological dig for the Mohican meeting house.

Please register in advance.

This walk is approximately a mile round trip and the sidewalks are accessible. Participants should be prepared to be walking and standing for about 90 minutes.

This walking tour has been developed by the Stockbridge-Munsee Community highlighting the years in which they lived in Stockbridge. Presented in partnership with Housatonic Heritage. The walking tours are free and open to the public.
