Heaven in the heart of the Berkshires
Nestled in the incomparable beauty of the Berkshires, Dalton is 50 miles northwest of Springfield and 130 miles northwest of Boston. The town has an array of cultural and natural attractions (see Community section) and is home to the world-class Crane papermaking company. Dotted with schools, churches and athletic fields, Dalton cherishes its small town atmosphere and is focused on family life. Basic needs can be satisfied right in town, while larger city shopping and amenities are easily available in neighboring Pittsfield and other nearby Berkshire towns.
