"This small city offers more restaurants and shops, certainly more galleries, theaters and performance venues than most urban centers dozens of times its size. Add two rivers, mountain views, landscaped parks and meadow walks, and you begin to see why people call it paradise." -The Boston Globe
"Northampton combines the cultural breadth of a major metropolis ... with the low-key sensibility of a small borough." -National Geographic Adventure
"Liberal enclave with rural roots" -AARP Magazine
We acknowledge that Northampton is built upon and benefited from the extensive contributions, assistance, and traditional land stewardship of Indigenous and First Peoples, including the Nipmuc and Pocumtuc Nations, who have inhabited this landscape since time immemorial. Our continued prosperity is dependent upon acknowledging and learning from its rich intertwined history, and we acknowledge the role of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians in this work.
