Bordered on two sides by mountains, the rural Berkshire County town of Clarksburg offers an abundance of spectacular views and recreational opportunities.

Comprising a total of 12.8 square miles, the town of Clarksburg, settled in 1769, is a paradise of natural beauty and resources. On the Vermont side of it border lies the Green Mountain National Forest, and the Appalachian Trail traverses the town from north to south. The highest point in town is East Mountain, at 2,300 feet. Clarksburg is home to the Clarksburg State Park, which offers a variety of recreational opportunities, as well as hiking, camping and picnicking. The town is governed by a board of selectmen and town administrator, and its services include police and fire departments, a public library and an elementary school serving students in grades K-8. High school-age students have the option of attending one of several schools in North Adams. In the nineteenth century, Clarksburg became known for its mills producing cashmere, and during the Civil War, gunpowder. The latter industry was halted, however, after an explosion at one of the mills in 1869.
