Adams in December
Before or after your train ride - or any time during the holiday season - please Explore Adams for dining, shopping, art and museums. Here are a few suggestions:
Visit the Mill Children Exhibit for a glimpse into the lives of the children that worked in local textile mills during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The exhibit is next door to the Adams Station at 1 Berkshire Square.
With the upcoming centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote in 1920, now is a great time to visit a museum devoted to one on the Women's Suffrage Movement's greatest advocates: Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum.
Directly across from Adams Station, is the Adams Visitors Center where you'll find the Thunderbolt Ski Museum. Dedicated to history of the famous Thunderbolt Ski Run down Mount Greylock and to the early ski racers who later went on to serve in the 10th Mountain Division during World War 2.
Enjoy shopping at our traditional retailers as well as a special Holiday Marketplace at the Firehouse Cafe at 47 Park Street - organized by Downtown Adams. Be sure to visit our newest retail shop, Bohemian Road at 57 Park Street.
