Whether born in these rolling hills, or you’ve come to the ivory-steeple towns later in life, there are a kaleidoscope of reasons we call the Berkshires home. Our sense of place is deeply rooted in the bucolic landscape and storied past. The farm-to-table culture thriving today celebrates our county's agricultural DNA (One of the first CSAs in North America originated here). Spend an autumn day touring our quiet country roads and you just might happen upon a Gilded Age summer “cottage” cresting through a medley of sorbet-colored leaves.
Literary luminaries like Edith Wharton and Herman Melville descended here for many of the same reasons we do today. It’s not just the clean mountain air and foliage that attracts New Yorkers and Bostonians alike. They settle into our hamlets, sit at our tables, and sink into our theatre seats because they get it: Berkshire County is a special place.
