Located in a beautiful valley at the base of the Berkshire Mountains, North Adams is an ideal community to work in and raise a family. Entrepreneurs from around the country have found that our natural beauty and growing cultural and creative economy are two very good reasons to locate and do business in North Adams.
We are very fortunate, as a small city, to have the five underpinnings of a much larger place. Located right here in our city is North Adams Regional Hospital and a growing medical community, an airport that is currently under expansion, a world class museum in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), a vibrant liberal arts college in Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) and, of course, the beauty of our natural environment.
Our biggest community assets lie within the ideas and vitality of our residents. We have truly become a very diverse community. From our new artists and business owners to folks like me who have lived here all our lives. The people of North Adams warmly remember our past, continue to grow in our present, and are very excited about our future.
There is no better time than now to engage with our wonderful city. We are in the midst of some significant changes that include an increased focus on economic development in all sectors, green initiatives, and a focus on our downtown,which already supports some of the finest restaurants and small businesses in North Berkshire. We are a city that is committed to being “business friendly” and welcoming to the ideas of all.
I invite you to become part of our community, part of a Great Place to Succeed.
