Basic Information

Weir Farm National Historic Site is a National Park for Art that preserves the life and work of Julian (J.) Alden Weir, a leading figure in the American Impressionist movement. The home, studios, and a significant portion of the landscape remain largely intact as one of the nation’s finest remaining landscapes of American art. The park continues to be a source of inspiration for artists and visitors to carry on this artistic tradition.

Park Grounds and parking lot are open daily, sunrise to sunset, year-round. Currently, all buildings and facilities, including restrooms, are closed for the season. Visit the park on your own using maps, brochures, self guided tours, the National Park Passport Stamp, and Junior Ranger activities located on the front porch of the visitor center, or visit virtually by exploring the resources here on the park website.

Winter Weather Information: Park grounds remain open in snowy weather, however parking areas are not cleared until 1-3 days after snowfall ends and trail clearing is minimal. After major snowstorms, we wait to plow the lot so parking may not be available. Please plan accordingly and consider visiting at a later date following a heavy snowfall. Use caution if driving to the park, as road conditions may be hazardous.

A safe and enjoyable park experience begins at home. The NPS encourages visitors to plan their visit by checking the park’s website and social media for current conditions and travel tips. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We ask the public to be our partner in recreating responsibly, by following CDC and state and local guidance, social distancing, and wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained.

Dogs: You are welcome to walk your dog at Weir Farm National Historic Site and the Weir Preserve, the 110-acre network of hiking trails directly adjacent to the property, as long as it remains leashed. (As per 36 CFR 2.15 (a)(2)) Please pick up after your pet - a pet waste station is located in the parking lot.
