The Conway School operates primarily out of its campus in Easthampton, MA. The school occupies a renovated mill building situated along the Manhan Rail Trail and overlooking Lower Mill Pond. A 15-minute walk connects the school with shops and restaurants in downtown Easthampton.
A large studio space in the mill building accommodates student desks, a classroom, supply/printer room, and two administrative offices. A conference room adjacent to the classroom provides additional meeting space. Faculty offices are located on the same floor, along with a full kitchen with a view of the Mt. Tom range.
The school’s library, located in the classroom, is a collection of over 3,000 volumes, broadly focused on land conservation, ecological restoration, landscape history, urban planning, graphic and technical skills, natural sciences, and regenerative design; in addition, the school subscribes to more than fifty professional journals.
The School also has a rural, wooded campus occupying 35 acres a half-mile east of the village of Conway. At the rural campus, trails traverse the native woodlands, around bedrock outcrops and vernal pools.
The single passive solar building, purchased and renovated by the Conway School in 2002–2003, is heated by a combination of wood and supplemental oil burner.
Two large sunny studio spaces, reception area, classroom with stunning east view, library, and study lounge with a Rumford woodstove fireplace are fully accessible; administrative offices are upstairs. There is also a kitchen available for preparing and heating lunches and snacks.
The facility is comfortable, and the rural surroundings – rolling woodlands, productive farm fields, rocky streams – position it as an ideal location for workshops and field work.
