Step back in time to the Nineteenth Century. This 1.5-mile walking trail in the downtown area takes visitors to 35 different historical stops along the way. Developed by the Pittsfield Historical Society this walking trail encompasses nearly all of the features found in any New England community over 100 years ago: homes, churches, schools, industrial and commercial building as well as dams and bridges. The trail creates a loop, traveling along Park Street, Carroll Street, Broadway, Main Street, Water Street, River Road, Bridge Street, Fayette Street, Depot Street and Elm Street. Some of the sites on the Historic Trail include the Old Meeting House, Cemetery, Tuttle Mansion, Opera House Block, Fort Wilkins, Washington House and Drake Field.
