Plan Your Visit to a HAHS Site This Winter

Many of our sites offer touring hours this season in their historic buildings.  Others have grounds that are open for hiking, cross country skiing and other outdoor activities.  These sites also provide opportunities to see exhibitions throughout these winter months.  In some instances the first week of January will be your last chance to see these first-rate presentations of historical and contemporary art.  Start the New Year off right and plan a visit to one (or more) of our Historic Artists' Homes and Studios!
