GREENFIELD — The Historical Society of Greenfield will host Gary Sanderson for a program titled “New Discoveries about Old Tavern Farm and its Greenfield Meadows Neighborhood” on Wednesday, May 15, at 6 p.m. in the Whiteman Room at the Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew, 8 Church St.

Sanderson will share new information he has unearthed since submitting this property to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Old Tavern Farm is located at 817 Colrain Road and dates back to 1740. It’s a farm complex begun during the Colonial period and continuing into the 19th century. The farmstead itself is Federal-style architecture, with a center chimney.

Parking is free in the church lot or on the street. Guests are advised to use the entrance on the east side of the building.
