The town of Southampton lies in the Connecticut River Valley, along the southern edge of Hampshire County. The land is both hilly to mountainous as well as rolling and farmed in large areas. Pomeroy Mountain and Wolf Hill Sanctuary are just a couple of the many conservation lands, both having trails suitable for everyone in the family.
A notable resident of Southampton was Nancy Conz. She was a runner, a pioneer woman marathoner; Conz held four American long distance running records set in the early 1980s, three of which were set on the UMASS Amherst track and held until they were all broken in a 2020 event. Another interesting fact: U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy was involved in a plane crash in Southampton in 1964.
Southampton is located about 10 miles southwest of Northampton and is a 20-minute drive via MA-10. Springfield is 17 miles southeast of the town via MA-10 S to US-202 N and then onto I-91 S. The only major route through Southampton is MA-10.
