This chapter examines the regionalist recollections of C. Alice Baker and the members of her queer triadic family: Susan Minot Lane and Emma Lewis Coleman. This family of New England regionalists rethought colonial New England history, especially the history of Deerfield, Massachusetts, through architectural restoration, antique collecting, heritage-tourism development, photography, archival research and history writing, and painting. Baker's historical works in particular demonstrate New England women regionalists' alternative approach to history writing, one that emphasized intimate engagement with historical matter, the embodied performance of history, and the reconfiguring of domestic spaces and family formations in relation to women's sensual and intellectual lives.

Keywords:   Baker, C. Alice, Deerfield, Massachusetts, Coleman, Emma Lewis, Frary House, Robert Junkins Garrison House, True Stories of New England Captives, white racial exceptionalism, intercolonial wars, queer hauntings, Lane, Susan Minot, triadic family
