About 15 miles north of Northampton and Amherst on US Route 5 and MA Route 10 is Historic Deerfield, a fascinating vestige of earlier times in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley.

The town's original long main street (called, creatively, The Street) shaded by enormous trees and lined with historic houses, churches, a comfy inn, and the renowned Deerfield academy private school, has been preserved and is now a museum of early American history.

You can spend as little as a half hour here, but it makes more sense to plan a morning or an afternoon looking at the various house museums, enjoying the colonial and early American ambience, and perhaps enjoying a meal or even an overnight at the Deerfield Inn.

Here's what to see and do in Old Deerfield.
