"A Little About Greenfield"
Greenfield is a city of 18,000 people and is the largest community in Franklin
County. It is situated in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, where
Interstate 91 intersects state Route 2, the historic Mohawk Trail.
Tranquility in the Pioneer Valley. But such was not always the case.
Greenfield sits at the head of this beautiful accident of history and geology,
where untold centuries of human conflict have taken place. The valley floor,
rich in sedimentary deposits as the ancient bed of the glacial Lake Hitchcock,
has provided ideal soil for the raising of crops for human sustenance.
The Connecticut River, along with its tributaries the Deerfield, the Green and
the Falls, draining through this ancient deposit have provided ideal habitat for
Atlantic salmon and shad, and brown and rainbow trout.
