Ventfort Hall, in Lenox Massachusetts, is one of the Berkshires’ gems. It’s a mansion and Gilded Age Museum. Guests can enjoy, in addition to tours and exhibits, lectures and picnics on the porch, and special events. This weekend we recommend the play, “They Called Me Lizzy…from Slavery to the White House.” See it Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14. It’s the true life story of ELizabeth Keckly and her rise from slavery to entrepreneurial freedom, then scandal and decline. She was dressmaker & confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln. You can walk to Ventfort Hall from Brook Farm Inn!
