Ye Stockade Shop and Tea Room Old Deerfield Mass., by an unknown photographer, 1900-1910.

Between 1910 and 1911, Lurane L. Bradford Wells ran a tea room near the site of the Old Indian House. "Ye Stockade Shop & Tea Room" exemplifies the myriad ways in which Deerfield residents capitalized on the town's Colonial heritage appeal.
