It has been the home of the Pocumtuck Indian people who farmed the rich soil on the banks of the Deerfield and Connecticut Rivers and English colonists who came here in the 1600s. The Inn is in the heart of Historic Deerfield, a museum complex of fourteen museum houses and the Flynt Center of Early New England Life.
