Historic Sites & Gardens

The region of the Berkshires has been a hotbed for cultural and political revolutionaries, as well as the aristocracy, dignitaries and icons alike. Much of that history has been well preserved in the built and natural landscapes dotting these hills and valleys. The cultural magnetism of the region brought with it some very impressive horticulture as well as a local community that deeply valued the character of its historic homes and villages so that great efforts were made to preserve this rich heritage. Here are some of what the Berkshires has to offer.
