Savoy was named after the French duchy, for its lookalike landscape.
On the northeastern border of Berkshire County, Savoy’s roots are in agriculture and lumber. It’s a small and quiet community, with a pretty landscape of sweeping panoramic views and tree-lined neighborhoods. The northern part of town is home to several brooks and a portion of the Deerfield River. Savoy is convenient to both North and Central Berkshire County, as well as to towns in the Pioneer Valley.
POINT OF INTEREST
SAVOY MOUNTAIN STATE FOREST
With its secluded location, Savoy Mountain doesn’t get as much traffic as some of its neighbors; this makes for a peaceful and unhurried hiking experience. The highest point is Borden Mountain, at about 2,500 feet. There are also four ponds and two waterfalls, including Tannery Falls, which plunges dramatically into a pool from nearly 100 feet up.
