Overlooking a prospect of farm and pleasure grounds, this gentleman's country seat was a powerful force in the lives of five generations of the Codman family.

 

Freedom’s Way has collaborated with each participating community, offering targeted support and providing a framework for program development and a website for promotion of the event. We appreciate the efforts of all who have worked to make Hidden Treasures 2017 a success. 

 

Freedom's Way connects the people, places and communities of the Heritage Area through preservation, conservation and educational initiatives to protect and promote our shared resources and to encourage residents and visitors to explore our landscape, history and culture. The Freedom’s Way Heritage Association works in partnership with the National Park Service to support the Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

 

Historic New England is the oldest and largest regional heritage organization in the nation. We share the region’s history through vast collections, publications, exhibitions, museum properties, and archives that document more than 400 years of life in New England.
