Historic Deerfield, Exhibits

The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery showcases Historic Deerfield’s important collection of fashion, needlework, and domestic textiles. The core of the collection was assembled through the efforts of one of the museum’s founders, Helen Geier Flynt (1895-1986). Considered one of the finest collections in America, the collection contains items dating from the late 17th century through the mid-20th century.
Explore a dazzling array of masterworks by famous American cabinetmakers including Duncan Phyfe and Honoré Lannuier, Samuel McIntire, John and Thomas Seymour, and John Townsend.
One of the finest assemblages of this indigenous and unique American art form ever presented are on exhibit.
