About Ashfield
The Town of Ashfield Massachusetts was founded in 1765 and is located in Franklin County. Originally the town was named Huntstown in 1736 but was later incorporated under its present name in 1765 with the support of Lord Thurlow of Ashfield, England.

Ashfield has about 1800 year round residents, in fact it's only in the last 20 years that more people have moved to the town rather than leave it.

Now a day's people are lured in by the cool breeze and scenic vistas and people from all over have moved to the town and have turned it into a cultural center.
