As Mayor of the City of Easthampton, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.
Easthampton, a city with a little over 16,000 residents, is located in the fertile Connecticut River Valley of Western Massachusetts and is rich in the flavor of an industrial New England village.
Easthampton has evolved from a rural farming village to a flourishing mill town and now to a vibrant and diverse community with a wealth of artists, retail shops, award-winning restaurants and numerous recreational opportunities. Our old mill buildings, once bustling with manufacturing enterprises, now buzz with the excitement of creative and cultural activities. The new boardwalk, surrounding the Nashawannuck Pond in the center of the city, serves as a gathering place for many and affords our residents and guests with an array of opportunities for leisure activity. Our six mile-long bike path, which runs from the Southampton border all the way to the OxBow section of the Connecticut River, provides opportunities for many segments of the population to enjoy such activities as a leisurely walk, a fast-paced run, roller blading and, of course, bicycling for all ages. Our monthly Art Walk affords arts and entertainment and has been increasing in popularity since its inception in 2006.
This website is intended to provide you with information about the operations of our local government and to give you a flavor for our City. If you feel that some specific change or addendum would add to its usefulness, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for visiting the City of Easthampton on the web. We look forward to serving you and hope to see you downtown, or around our amazing community.
Mayor Karen L. Cadieux
