The Berkshires town of West Stockbridge had an early history centered around the excavation of fine marble and iron ore. Much of the marble used to build the State House in Boston and the old City Hall in New York came from West Stockbridge quarries. Today, the town hosts a large summer resident and visitor population and is home to some of the more popular restaurants and art galleries in Berkshire county. Colonel Elijah Williams founded an ironworks in the Williamsville section of town; the furnace smokestack remains standing. (Photo credit:Wikipedia User:Faolin42)
