Many would agree that Pittsfield MA has always been the hub of the Berkshires. Because of its proximity to the Hoosatonic River and its numerous feeder brooks, what began as a quiet agricultural town, quickly grew into a thriving mill town. By the end of the Revolutionary War, Pittsfield had 2,000 residents. The town was a bustling metropolis by the late 19th century.
Today, Pittsfield MA is home to great food, music, and the arts. It’s the financial center of the Berkshires and home to the region’s biggest hospital.
