On the western border of Massachusetts, Alford is a peaceful rural town set against the beautiful backdrop of the Taconic mountain range.

Both the Green River and Alford Brook gently flow through the town, and diverse wildlife is frequently sighted among its picturesque hills. Settled in the mid 18th century and incorporated in 1773, the town was named for Colonel John Alford, known for his involvement with Harvard College’s Divinity School. The town’s roots are primarily agricultural, and still to this day working farms sell their produce in farmer’s markets and local shops. Situated along the Henry Knox Trail with few other roads and routes, Alford provides the desirable atmosphere of a secluded country retreat.
