fun fact

Housatonic’s historic train station, built in 1950, has also been used as an artist’s and recording studio

Although it’s classified as a small village at the northeastern edge of Great Barrington, Housatonic has a personality all its own. One of the region’s busiest mill towns in the 19th century, it has been reinvented as an outdoor and artist’s haven. Its buildings and landscape along the Housatonic River are a favorite subject for amateur and professional photographers, and there are several galleries and entertainment venues in its downtown. Housatonic is also a great place for biking, walking, and cross-country skiing, as well as youth basketball games at the Housy Dome.
