About LenoxFounded 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.
