About Lee

Named after prominent revolutionary patriot and commander General Charles Lee, the town of Lee has been in existence since the 1760s. Several historic buildings are worthy of attention, including the Congregational Church - a Romanesque-design building with a 150-foot steeple and a Seth Thomas Clock (one of only two of its kind ever made). The Lee Library and the Civil War Memorial Hall were both made from local marble, and Victorian homes with architectural and historical significance abound. Although Lee continues its hard-working traditions, it has also turned its attention to revitalization projects. While its charming downtown area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Lee now has an outlet shopping center (Berkshire Outlet Village on Rt. 20). The revitalization has also brought a fine assortment of restaurants, shops and other service businesses. The town is also very well endowed with natural beauty such as Laurel Lake.
