Shelburne residents get free admission to PVMA museum

SHELBURNE — In honor of the town’s 250th anniversary, the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association is giving all town residents an anniversary gift: free admission to the museum through the rest of the season, which runs through October. Timothy Neumann, the Association’s executive director, said Shelburne was formerly part of Deerfield before it became a separate settlement in 1768.

PVMA’s Memorial Hall, on Memorial Street, Deerfield, is one of the oldest history museums in the country. In this hall (a former schoolhouse built in 1798), there are 19 rooms filled with art, culture and history. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For non-Shelburne residents, admission is $6 adults, $3 children.
