Open House & Reception

Anna Whitney William WhitneyYou are cordially invited to attend a reception at the Museum & Archives to view the newest additions to the museum. Spirits of 19th century Stockbridge citizens will guide you to view the portraits of William and Anna Whitney hung over a mantle from Heaton Hall while they talk about the personalities and events of the times.

The Whitneys were farmers owning considerable property on Church Street. William and Anna Whitney, who resided on Main Street, were very involved in Stockbridge town life including the library and the Laurel Hill Association. Heaton Hall was built and owned by the Treadways who also owned the Red Lion Inn (known earlier as the Stockbridge House).

Whitney relatives from the past will share family history and gossip, and Mert Plumb (1833-1916) will be on hand to reveal the details of running the hotel. We hope you will join us to celebrate the new acquisitions and listen to a bit of Stockbridge’s history about the Whitney family and Heaton Hall.
