About Mission House Guided Tour

New England’s Colonial history—from the perspective of the colonists as well as the indigenous peoples who preceded them—comes alive inside the home to the first missionary to the Mohicans. In the mid-1730’s, the Mohicans living in Western Massachusetts permitted a young minister to live among them. The Rev. John Sergeant lived in a simple cabin until he married Abigail Williams in 1739 and built The Mission House around 1742.

Originally located on Prospect Hill in Stockbridge, this National Historic Landmark was carefully disassembled, moved, and restored by Mabel Choate—who owned Naumkeag, just up the hill—at its present location between 1926 and 1930.

Come learn more about the history of the house and its collection on a half-hour guided tour. Afterwards, be sure to check out the Mohican Miles exhibit!

Free for members, $5 for nonmembers.
Tours will meet at the front of the house. Admission can be sold on site, but capacity is limited.
