Additional Details:
Built 1698. Deerfield is a pretty Massachusetts village near the foot of Deerfield Mountain, 700 feet high, which commands an extended view. This is in the center of those scenes of which we read in the history of the founding of New England. The Deerfield Valley was the scene of some of the bloodiest incidents of King Philip's War. Nearby is Sugar Loaf Mountain, the reported headquarters of the Indian, King Philip. The old Frary house is a well-preserved relic of Colonial and Indian fighting days, set right in the front center of the scene
