C.S. Lewis Study Center Coming to Northfield

Recorder/Paul Franz
The C.S. Lewis Foundation has offered to buy Green Pastures, a 14-room Victorian at 199 Main St. in Northfield, which is owned by Northfield Mount Hermon School. The organization wants to establish a scholars’ residence and C.S. Lewis study center.

The original group that had hoped to take over the former Northfield Mount Hermon School campus will be coming to town after all.

“Our plan is to establish a scholars’ residence, and C.S. Lewis study center, just as we have in Oxford, England,” said J. Stanley Mattson, president and founder of the C.S. Lewis Foundation.

“We’re coming to Northfield, at long last.”

Green Pastures, a 14-room Victorian close to the campus, will serve as that study center.

The space will be used to host resident writers and scholars, as well as educators on sabbatical, as well as conferences and special events like evening concerts, poetry readings, and discussion groups. It will also feature programs available to the surrounding community, such as lectures, “great books” seminars, and performing arts events.
