Sheffield is a picturesque New England town located in the Housatonic River Valley of Berkshire County in Western Massachusetts. Comprised of two villages, Sheffield and Ashley Falls, the town’s development pattern has been greatly influenced by its physical features: the Housatonic River and its wide floodplain; the Schenob Brook wetland complex and the steep slopes of the Berkshire Hills on the east and the Taconic Range on the west.
Sheffield center, with its brick sidewalks and period lighting, includes a small green bordered by two banks, a post office, several shops and museums and the stately Old Parish Church, perched on the site of the town’s first meetinghouse. From May through October, there’s a weekly Friday afternoon farmers’ market; the rest of the year, an indoor farmers’ market is held on Saturday mornings in the wood-paneled Dewey Memorial Hall, built in 1887. Ashley Fall’s downtown has a post office, several antique shops and a green where a community tree- lighting is held each Christmas.
Noted for its deep agricultural soils, much of Sheffield remains open and in agricultural production. A combination of wide open river valley, mountain vistas and active farmland makes Sheffield one of the most scenic towns in the Commonwealth. Located on US Route 7, Sheffield is approximately one hour from Hartford, Springfield and Albany, and two and one-half hours from Boston and New York City.
