Shelburne and Buckland (likely named for its abundance for hunting) are both known for being agricultural towns. Shelburne was initially settled along the coast of the Deerfield River and later spread East as the population grew. Mary Lyon, the Founder of the Mount Holyoke Female Seminary or, now known as, Mount Holyoke College, was born in Buckland in 1797 shortly after it was incorporated.
Shelburne Falls is the village that makes up the downtown business center for both Shelburne and Buckland. The Falls were previously known as Salmon Falls and considered an important fishing site for Native Americans. Well known features of Shelburne Falls include the Bridge of Flowers and the glacial potholes. The potholes are visible in the Deerfield River just South of the bridge which spans the river and displays an array of flowers from April to October. Shelburne Falls Bowling Alley is the second oldest bowling alley in the country, it opened in 1906.
Shelburne Falls is located along Route 2, the Mohawk Trail. It lies 10 miles West of Greenfield, 42 miles East of Pittsfield, and 28 miles Northeast of Northampton.
