Memorial Hall Old PhotoMemorial HallWestern New England has a rich history dating back to the first colonies in New England, and before that, centuries of Native American lore. Shelburne Falls is built around Salmon Falls, a traditional fishing site where Native Americans filled their larders with salmon spawning upstream from the Connecticut River. The tradition continued through the Industrial Revolution, with early metal foundries and factories harnessing the power of local rivers to produce tools and machinery for early farmers. Today that history is celebrated in museums and historical societies in many of the area towns.

Shelburne Falls is the business district shared by the towns of Buckland and Shelburne. Once a prime Salmon fishing spot for native Americans, the village gradually emerged more than a century ago as a manufacturing community centered around industry on the Deerfield River. The village experienced a revitalization in the 1980s and 1990s, and unlike many similar communities, evolved and continues to be a vital downtown with a growing reputation as an arts community.

The village resisted the "urban renewal" trend of the 1950s and 1960s, which has left our generation with an historic, turn-of-the-century setting for a unique mix of locally owned businesses.

It's a village where you can buy either a head of iceberg lettuce or a hand-blown glass vase!

Shelburne Falls is home to the world-famous Bridge of Flowers, which attracts more than 35,000 visitors a year, as well as the Glacial Potholes, a curiously beautiful rock formation. The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum celebrates the village's transportation heritage.

Most everything in the village is within walking distance, so if you're planning to spend some time in the village -- and we hope you do! -- we encourage you to park in one of the free public parking lots off Bridge Street. (Follow the Parking signs, or see the location on the village map.)
