"Hadley is the most beautiful place on earth," the widely traveled Clifton Johnson once declared. "Any prospective museum should be located here."
The Hadley Farm Museum houses an incredible collection of vehicles and equipment used on New England farms and farmhouses from the late 1700s to the early 20th century. Located in a 1782 barn, the museum showcases many items just as they would have been found on the farm.
What's inside? The first broom making machine, spinning wheels, cobblers' benches, hay tedders, butter churns, furnishings, tools, toys, and many more historic artifacts of times gone by. Also on display is our newly restored stagecoach (climb inside!) that led Hadley's 350th Celebration parade.
The Hadley Farm Museum is located in the historic town of Hadley, Massachusetts, next to the Town Hall and near the Congregational Church with its unusual, beautiful spire. It is located at the junction of Routes 9 and 47, just four miles from Northampton, on the way to Amherst.
