fun fact

Charles H. Baldwin & Sons, on Center Street, has been making vanilla and other extracts since 1888.

West Stockbridge might seem like the little sister to Stockbridge, but its profile has been rising over the past decade, thanks to an influx of new residents and businesses. Its sweet, walkable downtown is the major draw, but it also boasts two of the county’s best restaurants, as well as a growing arts scene. Like many towns in the Berkshires, West Stockbridge also has dozens of outdoor activities, from canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing, to biking, walking, and hiking. Or visit the pick-your-own farms for apples, blueberries, and pumpkins, or go foraging for wild foods.
