About North Adams

North Adams may be the least populated city in the state, but it has the largest contemporary art museum in the United States, The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. So in spite of its lack of people, North Adams is becoming a hub for tourism and culture. First settled during King George's War in 1745 it was where the siege of Fort Massachusetts by Canadian and Native American forces took place. The town was named after Samuel Adams who signed the Declaration of Independence and was a leader in the American Revolution. Originally a mill town, North Adams sits on the Hoosac River.

This is where you can find the Harmonic Bridge. Quirky but real, two artists put resonating tubes and microphones under the highway overpass connecting them to speakers on either side of the road under the bridge. This is one thing not to miss, listening to the unique sonic humming melodies. You can visit the some say haunted Hoosac Tunnel that burrows nearly 5 miles through the Hoosac Mountain Range and is nicknamed "The Bloody Pit" due to the fact that over 200 men died in the construction of it. Construction began in 1851 and was completed in 1875; it was used as a passenger and freight train tunnel. Today it is only used by a few freight trains traversing from North Adams to Florida. For a view with no ghosts, go to the Natural Bridge State Park where you can see a naturally created white marble arch in an abandoned marble quarry from the 1800s and estimated to be about 550 million years old.

The definite place to visit is the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) for a dose of arty inspiration. There are numerous art galleries dotted around town and a few of the old mills have been converted into lofts for local artists to live and work in.
