Greenfield is the largest city in Franklin County, and has a lively main street with shops and a large, old-fashioned department store called Wilson’s. Homes are generally more affordable here. Many are finely crafted with beautiful woodwork and traditional elegance. Greenfield Community College has an excellent 2 year program, and is nestled at the starting point of the famous Mohawk Trail (Route 2). Poet’s Seat Park with its tower is a lovely retreat, and offers panoramic views of the town and Berkshire Hills beyond. Everything you need is at your fingertips within the center of town (including a delightful farmers’ market on Saturdays during the growing season).
