Charlemont

Description:

Charlemont was one of three townships granted to Boston by the General Court in 1735. The town, being vulnerable to attacks, was the site of a Native American raid in 1755, which resulted in several deaths and two people’s capture.

The principal business in Charlemont used to be agriculture, but today is outdoor recreation with three outdoor outfitters in town.

Charlemont is located in the western part of Franklin County, along the Mohawk Trail (MA Route 2), 18 miles west of Greenfield.

The Outdoors

Charlemont has three outdoor companies which bring in thousands of visitors annually. Berkshire East Mountain Resort offers downhill skiing, mountain-biking, zip-lining, whitewater rafting and rides on its mountain coaster. Zoar Outdoor also offers whitewater rafting and zip-lining, plus kayak instruction and camping. Crab Apple Whitewater offers rafting and "funyaking", as well. The Great Outdoors also offers river tubing and shuttles from the town center up to the river.

Charlemont is also home to the Mohawk Trail State Forest , 6,000 acres of wilderness, where people come to hike, camp, fish, and swim. In the summertime, the Deerfield River brings people from all over the region to go boating, canoeing, fishing, and tubing. Before heading out, you can stop by Overwatch Outpost on Main Street in Charlemont for hunting and fishing supplies. They also offer guided trips and classes.

Town/Cultural Events

Every summer, Mohawk Trail Concerts offers live musical concerts at the Federated Church. The town is also host to the Charlemont Reggae Festival in August and the Deerfield River Festival in June, produced by American Whitewater and Zoar Outdoor as a celebration of the river.

Food & Drink

Berkshire Pizzeria on Main Street offers delicious pizzas, grinders, salads, and more. In the warm weather, it's nice to sit outside on their back deck, overlooking the Deerfield River. Across the street is Cold River Café and Package Store. Sit down for a meal or grab something to go at the counter, or browse the package store for a variety of beers, wines, and spirits.

Local Favorites

Zoar Books & Gallery, a general used bookstore, is located in a red house by the river.
