Learn More About the Life and Literature of Herman Melville

The Berkshire County Historical Society at Herman Melville's Arrowhead is a non-profit corporation dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating the history of Berkshire County in western Massachusetts. In addition, the BCHS is committed to the preservation and interpretation of Arrowhead, home of author Herman Melville from 1850 until 1863, the first National Historic Landmark to be so designated in Berkshire County.

Arrowhead is open to the public for guided tours May through October. Purchase tickets in the museum store. During the off-season, guided tours can be arranged for an additional fee by calling in advance.

In addition to tours of Arrowhead, the BCHS conducts a variety of programming related to both Melville and local history. We maintain a collection of archives and artifacts that are available to view in one of our exhibitions or by appointment. We host book signings, lectures, concerts, and plays in our 1840s barn throughout the season.

Visit the grounds with hiking trails through the fields and woodlands, check out our museum store in person or online, or bring a group of students or adults to learn about Melville and Berkshire County history.
