Welcome

The White Church of Blandford was built in 1822.

It sits high on a hill in Blandford, Massachusetts, a New England town settled in 1732.

This historic building is owned by the Historical Society of Blandford and is maintained by community volunteers. It is open by appointment in the summer and is a beautiful setting for weddings and concerts.

Everyone is Welcome.
