Welcome to Shelburne Falls!

Shelburne Falls is the heart of ten small towns in the Deerfield River Valley of Massachusetts. Located on the scenic and historic Mohawk Trail in the Berkshire foothills, Shelburne Falls and the surrounding area is rich with natural beauty, talented artisans, four season recreation and an atmosphere that will make you feel right at home.

Congratulations to Robert Duval for his Oscar nomination for his performance in The Judge filmed in Shelburne Falls in 2013. Duvall made history with his Oscar nomination. The Judge star, 84, became the oldest supporting actor nominee ever.

He surpassed Hal Holbrook, who at 82 years, 339 days was nominated for Into the Wild in 2007.

Garden Reveries:
Paintings by Kerry Stone, Pastels by Rebecca Clark, Objects for the garden by Ashfield Stone, Gabriel Dark Stonework, Bob Compton Metalsmith

Exhibit: February 27 through April 25

What better time to dream about a garden than when the snow is deep and the temperatures low? Painter Kerry Stone and Rebecca Clark (pastels and paintings) show works inspired by flowers: from pansies in snow to gardens in full summer bloom. Ashfield Stone and Gabriel Dark Stonework offer bird baths made from boulders, stone cairns and a bench for resting and gazing at our artist’s interpretations of garden beauty. Bob Compton's steel dragonfly helps you remember the patio or pond that it needs to be near. This exhibit helps you reimagine your own garden or possibly, just possibly give you hope that spring is near!

 
Snow date - March 1st
Meet at the end of Flagg Hill Road, Heath. Park along road near kiosk and farm barn.

Join Ted Watt, naturalist at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst, for a relaxed exploration along the newly completed public access trail at The Benson Place low bush blueberry farm in Heath. The Benson Place has been permanently protected through the Massachusetts Agricultural Preservation Restriction program, with assistance from FLT, preserving its unique blueberry barrens habitat and the magnificent views to the south and west. We'll follow the route of the trail looking for signs of animals and other intriguing goings on in the world of nature. The present owners will welcome us to the farm.
