Did you know… MSH and the Norfolk Hunt Club

Did you know that the Norfolk Hunt Club has been hunting on the Medfield State Hospital property since 1900? In the 1950’s, the Hunt would notify the hospital so that they could open the gates allowing the Hunt through.  Often the patients would watch horses, riders and hounds as they galloped past the facility in the adjacent fields, often en route to the Leverett Saltonstall property in Dover.  This Thanksgiving Day the Hunt will continue its tradition of going through the property.  You can watch the approximately 75 – 90 horses and riders, accompanied by 30+ hounds as they arrive at the Sledding Hill around 9:30 AM on Thursday, November 28.
