Southwick in Hampden county, Massachusetts

Southwick, MA

The town of Southwick, Massachusetts is located in the southwestern portion of the state, and is considered part of the Springfield Metropolitan Area.

As was true of many early New England communities, when Southwick was settled in the mid 1700s it was used as farmland. Upon securing a place of worship in the area, Southwick was eventually established as an independent town in 1775.

The advent of rail travel turned Southwick into a tourist community by the mid 1800s.

The hills, mountains, lakes, and ponds are still providing that breath of fresh air. The 114-mile long Metacomet-Monadnock hiking trail takes hikers through a variety of terrain. A variety of eateries dot the town, including casual stops and fine dining establishments. For those seeking the nightlife and accommodations of a larger city, Springfield is just 20 minutes by car, and Hartford, Connecticut about 35 minutes. Common industries are in construction, metal work, and public administration. Southwick is part of the Southwick-Tolland-Granville Regional School District.

Southwick has a little for everyone. Close proximity to larger cities and quiet natural beauty have drawn more than 9,500 residents to the town.
