Heath

Description:

Originally part of Charlemont, Heath was incorporated in 1785. The Heath Historical Society, located in the center of town, has displays representing Heath’s past, including palm-leaf hats. From the 1830s to the Civil War, women and children in Heath braided these palm-leaf hats and sold them for extra income in the winter months.

Heath is located in the northwestern part of Franklin County, south of the Vermont border. The major through road is MA Route 8A, which connects to VT Route 8A at the state border and intersects MA Route 2 in Charlemont.

Town/Cultural Events

For the past 100 years, town residents have looked forward to the Heath Fair each August. Held at the Heath Fairgrounds, the fair has everything from live music, to arts and crafts, to horse and oxen draws, plus barbecue and more.

The Outdoors

Heath is a great town for those who wish to escape the city and spend time in a rural setting. Off the beaten path, Heath is close to many state forests for hiking and camping and the Deerfield River for fishing and boating.

Burnt Hill is the highest point in Heath, offering scenic vistas and located near two wild blueberry farms.

Local Favorites

The Benson Place is a blueberry farm offering pick-your-own berries or pre-picked berries. They also offer pick up at other locations in Franklin and Hampshire County.

Bourke Shire Farm is a bed & breakfast in a historic country home. It is perfect for those seeking a getaway, with its remote location and lack of cell service.

Robert Dane, local glassblower, has his studio in Heath. His works are inspired by Italian tradition but have an American flavor.
