The Town of Greenfield was founded in 1753 as a town and then later in 2003 as a city. Although a city government, the community wishes to be known as “The Town of Greenfield”.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra as well as the Poets Seat Tower which was named after a long tradition of poets being drawn to the area. There is also the Artspace Community Arts Center or the Greenfield Energy Park where you are able to learn about energy resources or simply relax.
Residents of Greenfield feel it is the sort of town most people dream about as the ideal place to live and raise a family.
