Florence, a village that lies in the Northwest corner of Northampton, has a rich history. Similar to Florence, Italy, the area had a thriving silk industry. Here you can visit the Sjourner Truth Memorial Statue and public garden, located about a quarter mile South of the first home Sojourner Truth owned - Truth, formerly a slave in the state of New York, was nationally known for being a Women’s rights activist and American abolitionist. Today, the center is robust with small retail shops and art studios located in renovated former factories.
Conveniently located at the intersections of Interstate 91 (North and South) and Route 9 (East and West), Northampton is less than 20 miles North of Springfield, MA, 40 miles South of Brattleboro, VT, and roughly 8 miles West of Amherst center and the University of Massachusetts campus.
