This year marks the 75th anniversary of Ada Southworth Munson’s gift to the Society of her unique family home. Mrs. Munson was a founding member of the Deep River Historical Society in 1938. She bequeathed her home to the Society shortly before her death in August of 1946. The Stone House is representative of the early quarry industry in town. The growth of the Southworth family parallels the growth of the village of Deep River to a thriving industrial town importing and exporting goods around the world.
We are so excited the reopening of the Stone House coincides with this historical anniversary!
We will be celebrating all summer long with a local scavenger hunt where you will be able to find “75 bits of History to Celebrate 75 Years”. Details to come!!

Cheers to 75 Years!
