Living History Day at the Stone House Museum  |  Belchertown  |  2005 

Living History Day at the Stone House Museum in July 2004 brought hundreds of community members together to experience what life was like in 19th century Belchertown. A Civil War encampment in the center of town set the scene for a weekend of historical reenactments, musical performances, folk art exhibits, and 19th-century games of baseball and cards. The celebration succeeded in raising $25,000 to restore a town monument.
