Website said that it was open on holidays. Went on Columbus Day - no one around. Had e-mailed and called ahead of time - no answer. Seems to be an odd attraction.

Old Greenfield Village is only open by appointment and is not listed in the phone book, making it difficult to get to! The Chamber of Commerce can, no doubt, help you with that. We enjoyed visiting the school house, church, store, tinsmith's shop, and more. All have been built or restored by the owner as an act of love. A... More

A beautiful and quaint New England main street not unlike many others scattered through many towns in Vermont, New Hampshire, etc etc. However, at around dusk, things began to get a little strange. You see, these creatures dressed in their best thrift store rags started coming out from what appeared to be thin air. You began to hear them shout... More

A New England "Williamsburg" well worth a half-day's visit. Even if you don't buy a ticket to enter some of the historic houses, just walking around the area is wonderful.

Between visiting Old Sturbridge Village, Plymouth Plantation, Strawbery Banke Museum in NH, and Historic Deerfield the BEST by far was Old Greenfield Village!!! I cannot say enough about this place! I've been twice and wouldn't mind going back again sometime. The amount of stock in each of the buildings that this nice retired school teacher and his wife put together... More

Don't bother. A kind of sad attempt to make something of nothing. Might be closed permanently, now, anyway.

Went here on a whim after living in the Amherst area for two years. It's a great site all hand built. I was given a personal tour and learned a lot, the man who built it has devoted a lot of time and energy to recreating a whole town. There was even an old print press. A delightful day trip... More

If you are in the area I highly recommend a visit to Old Greenfield Village. Its located at the base of the Mohawk Trail in Greenfield, MA. and the proprietor, Waine Morse, hand built every building and put together all of the antiques and "scenes" of this village. He has an entire Black Smith Shop, an Apothecary, a Soda Shop... More
