West Stockbridge has approximately 1,300 full time residents, many of whom trace their family roots back through multiple generations, and another 400 residents who are part time second homeowners. (These part time residents include many performers in Berkshire County’s world-renowned summer cultural events, including Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow and the Williamstown Theater Festival and Berkshire Theatre Group.)
Since 2005, the town has gone through a rebirth. Concerts, theatre, art shows, lectures and author talks sponsored by the Historical Society at the restored Old Town Hall bring in over 2,500 visitors every year. The town also has several active arts venues, such as Turn Park Art Space, drawing visitors from all over. West Stockbridge has become the quiet destination of cultural, scenic beauty without the crowds and glitz of our more well known neighboring towns.
