Naumkeag is a National Historic Landmark in Stockbridge, MA run by the Trustees of Reservations. This architectural masterpiece is, at its heart, a family home. Joseph Choate, a leading 19th-century attorney, hired the architectural firm of McKim, Mead, & White to design the 44-room “cottage,” Naumkeag, which would serve as a summer retreat for three generations of Choates. It was bequeathed in its entirety in 1958 – from furniture to garden tools to its intact dairy barn and now you can visit the house and gardens May 26 through October 15 from 10am to 5pm. We are joined now by Coleen Henry, the Naumkeag Cultural Site Administrator and Kate Preissler, their Western Region Educator.
