The Thaddeus Clapp House

New Beginnings for the Thaddeus Clapp House

The Thaddeus Clapp House, built in 1871, is an iconic Pittsfield home. Located on Wendell Avenue, this gilded-age home represents an important chapter in Pittsfield’s history. Berkshire Theatre Group is proud to maintain and preserve this historic home. In 2019, the $1 million restoration of The Thaddeus Clapp House was completed thanks to the generous support of dozens of individual donors as well as the City of Pittsfield’s Community Preservation Act Program and the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund, a program of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, administered through a collaborative arrangement between Mass Development and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

In a Boston Globe article by Don Aucoin on Covid‑19, Artistic Director Kate Maguire said:
"Out of need will come the way. Once the pandemic ebbs, whenever that is, there will be an incredible need to gather again." The theatre has existed from the time of the Greeks. We will go on.
