Clarksburg was originally a mill town that produced the unusual combination of cashmere and gunpowder.
On the northernmost border of Berkshire County and Vermont, Clarksburg is known for its small-town feeling and scenic landscape, combining rugged hills with expansive plateaus and tranquil ponds. It’s home to a picturesque state park, and a portion of the Appalachian Trail crosses through town.
Located on the Hairpin Turn of the Mohawk Trail, at 1,700 feet above sea level, this building, originally built in 1914, was once a gift shop for trail travelers. It’s now a place to enjoy food, drinks, and spectacular vistas.
