8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Deerfield Community Center, Deerfield, Massachusetts
As early as the 18th century, Americans were a population on the move despite the hardships, expense, and logistical challenges of long-distance travel. New Englanders seemed especially prone to journey far from their homes as they succumbed to what a 19th-century observer described as “the general principal of Yankee roam-all-over-the-world-itiveness.”
This day-long symposium explores New Englanders and travel within and outside New England from 1700-1950, including travel customs, fashion, technology, tourism, and regional identity.
The symposium, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Deerfield Community Center from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
