The Bidwell House Museum is a 1760s New England heritage site providing through its land, house, and collection a personal encounter with early settler life in Berkshire County. The museum includes the fully furnished colonial homestead, several outbuildings and 192 acres of grounds with gardens, stone walls, foundations and hiking trails.
The History Fellow lives in a small apartment located at the Bidwell House Museum during the summer when the museum is open to the public. The Fellow acts as the head docent of the museum and manages the Young History Scholar Interns. The History Fellow will also work on a summer-long research project about colonial history that will be presented to the public at the end of the fellowship.
