Deerfield Academy: The Campus Guide offers five curated architectural walks across the picturesque campus of one of the most distinguished college preparatory schools in the country. Deerfield's 330-acre campus hosts exceptional buildings by such noted architects as Asher Benjamin, Charles Platt, Edward Larrabee Barnes, and David Childs. The Academy maintains several eighteenth-century houses and has played a central role in the restoration of many historic structures open to the public in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Extensive photography and a beautifully illustrated map illuminate the school's evolution from its founding in 1797 to the present. An inspirational foreword by Head of School John P. N. Austin and an essay by former Head of School Margarita O'Byrne Curtis frame this architectural journey. Specially priced for the Deerfield Community (regular price $37.50). 224 pages.
