Charlemont and the Berkshires
A. L. Avery & Son is located in Charlemont, Massachusetts, on the historic Mohawk Trail, one of the oldest scenic highways in the US. Every fall thousands of people drive through the area to enjoy the spectacular fall colors. The natural beauty of this part of western Massachusetts attracts year round visitors and second home owners. Its proximity to the Five Colleges - U Mass Amherst, Hampshire College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke, Amherst College - has attracted for decades musicians, artists, authors, theologians, and naturalists.
"A.L. Avery & Son looks like any other small town shop as you pass through Charlemont on Route 2 in Franklin County. But as we all know, looks, however, can be deceiving …" -- Tony Dunne, "Family, Tradition, and Community"
