The Captain Charles Leonard House was built in 1805 as a tavern to serve travelers as the first stop on the Hartford to Boston stage run.

The Captain Charles Leonard House passed through a succession of owners, including the George Fowler family, who owned it at the turn of the twentieth century. Serving as multifamily rental property in the early decades of the 1900s, the house had fallen into disrepair by 1938, when prominent Agawam citizen Mrs. Minerva Davis purchased the house and proceeded to have it fully restored. Mrs. Davis then created a board of trustees to operate the building as Agawam’s Community House.

In addition to the Asparagus Supper, the board of trustees host various events at the Captain Charles Leonard House. More information can be found here.
