The History of Arms Acres

Winifred Arms and her husband, Robert, dedicated their lives to helping those suffering from chemical dependency. As the story goes, Mr. Arms, a recovering alcoholic himself, was known to bring suffering addicts into his home in the Berkshires. Ironically, Robert Arms was killed by a drunk driver in 1971. In the years following his death, Winifred continued their dedication to the cause of helping alcoholics into recovery. She opened the doors of Arms Acres in March, 1982. Mrs. Arms died in 1995.
