With September behind us, we’re settling into fall and enjoying the vibrant foliage and the last of the lovely weather before winter brings cold and snow. What better way to take advantage of New England’s most beautiful season than to visit the region’s historic homes? This month’s digital desktop calendar features a breathtaking image of Historic Deerfield in Deerfield, MA which is featured in New England’s Historic Homes & Gardens by Kim Knox Beckius and William H. Johnson. While the properties profiled in the book are stunning year-round, autumn’s reds, golds, and oranges add a special touch to their manicured landscapes.

For more great foliage-focused trip ideas, check out the About.com New England Travel website, written by Kim Knox Beckius, who is an expert on New England’s fall colors. And don’t forget to pick up your copy of New England’s Historic Homes & Gardens!
