A Visitor's Guide

We encourage people to take advantage of the unstructured layout of our village-like campus—to walk the fields and trails, explore the Longfellow Garden, tour the Inn, Mill, and Schoolhouse, or sit for a picnic lunch next to Hop Brook.

The Wayside Inn was formerly known as the Howe Tavern, and was operated by four generations of that one family from 1716 to 1861. Wander westward, towards the Schoolhouse and Grist Mill, over the old stone bridge, and take a walk through history!
