The Burchfield Society Board honored Charles Burchfield's mother on Mother's Day weekend 2021. Alice Murphy Burchfield was a single mother who raised six wonderful and productive children in this very homestead. She was also known in the neighborhood as a talented baker. Visitors to the backyard garden sampled a cookie made with love from a vintage recipe.
Children were inspired to create their own Mother’s Day cards in our Night Wind House.
Salem Girl Scouts Troop 80774 members dedicated a Little Free Library which they sponsored across the street on a Burchfield Homestead property.
