Cultural Heritage

The Alice Ferguson Foundation promotes the education and preservation of the history, culture, and arts related to Alice and Henry Ferguson by interpreting the art, cultural artifacts, archival and other related objects, landscapes, and structures of Hard Bargain Farm for the benefit of children, adults, regional residents, and visitors.

Arts in the Woods continue the love and tradition of theater and music enjoyed by Alice and her friends in the outdoor Amphitheater at HBF.
