Description
Founded in 1767, Lenox was the county seat for many years. The town is a Berkshire summer resort and best known for its late 19th-century “cottages”—a whimsical term used by wealthy families of the time to describe their mansions. A representative section of the Berkshires is preserved in Mass Audubon's Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.
Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum, Lenox Station near Housatonic Street and Willow Creek Road, is in a restored 1902 depot that features area railroading exhibits and model train displays. Narrated round-trip train rides also are offered; phone (413) 637-2210.
Shakespeare & Company , 70 Kemble St., whose alumni include Richard Dreyfuss and Sigourney Weaver, performs plays on three stages early May to mid-December; phone (413) 637-1199.
