The Pioneer Valley is a hidden gem that has carefully and lovingly been polished over the past 40 years to reveal its' inner beauty.
There is a wealth of resources to mine; Historic, Cultural, Recreational and Educational .....all available for the taking.
It is a preserved way of life that has been cherished for generations. Its' simplicity is both cultivated and progressive enough to stay on the cutting edge.
While we might appear to be too far out in the country for some, we know otherwise.
It is an easy trek to Boston, New York, or points north and south whenever the mood strikes.But mostly, it is the people that live here--that bring it all together. Whether it's festivals that celebrate the rivers, the hills, the libraries, the arts, the fruits of our labor, or simply.....the four seasons. It is a special way of life .... the spirit of a community and knowing your neighbor.
It is Americana at its best.
