Witch of Blackbird Pond Tours
For the first time, the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum is opening the beloved Buttolph-Williams House for public tours for the month of October in 2020. Author Elizabeth George Speare, a resident of Wethersfield, used the decidedly medieval-looking house (c. 1711) as the setting for her Newbery Medal-winning book, “The Witch of Blackbird Pond.” The book is the basis for one of the most treasured education programs at WDS and has been read by generations of school children.
Witch of Blackbird Pond Tours are offered at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and Sundays at 1 and 3 p.m.by advance registration. To register contact Acting Co-Director Cynthia Riccio at 860-529-0612, ext. 12, or email@example.com.
