National Historic Site
Thinker’s Lodge is the location of the first-ever Pugwash Conferences of Science and World Affairs in 1957. At this meeting, the owner, Cyrus Eaton, hosted 22 scientists from opposite sides of the Iron Curtain and discussed the threat of nuclear weapons.
This conference, in addition to Joseph Rotblat’s efforts to prevent nuclear war, was awarded the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel is displayed at the Thinker’s Lodge. Certainly, a must-see for any history buff.
The Lodge is open from June through August and by appointment.
