Fifty Years of Rambling

In October 1965, The Beatles topped the charts with Yesterday. On NBC, I Dream of Jeannie had just started its first season. American ground troops were now fighting in Vietnam. In Adams, Mass., a group of creative and dedicated volunteers held the very first Greylock Ramble. The committee was called “Operation Wonderful Town” and was chaired by Bill Linscott, well known in Adams as both a businessman, but also as a champion Thunderbolt skier. Their idea was to hold an annual hike to the summit of Mount Greylock during the peak of the foliage season in order to attract visitors to the town.



Suggestions? Want to help? is a community site. A team of volunteers from Adams, called ProAdams, built this site because we love our town and want to see it thrive. We absolutely welcome your ideas. If you have an event you would like listed, an idea for a story, or a photo you'd like to share, please be in touch.

In addition to helping with this site, ProAdams is always looking for volunteers to help with other projects and events such as RambleFest and ThunderFest. Of course, business sponsorships and monetary contributions are always welcome.
