Northampton Historic Markers

Seven historic markers link selected sites from Florence Center to the Bridge Street Cemetery. Each marker provides a link in a chain of interpretation telling the story of Northampton's history. Containing colorful historical photographs and prints, these site markers tie history and place together.

This project was was made possible by a generous grant from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities. Each historical marker is sponsored privately.
