Welcome to Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts!

Moonlight Magic 2016 is the place to find information about the hilltowns of West Franklin County, Massachusetts, including the iconic village of Shelburne Falls.

In addition to the Village of Shelburne Falls, you'll find information on this site about all our towns, including Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Conway, Hawley, Heath, Plainfield, Rowe, and Shelburne, all lining the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) along the Deerfield River in Western Massachusetts.

The region boasts gorgeous scenery in every season; world-class recreational pursuits; and a bounty of farms offering fresh fruits and vegetables, maple syrup, and the best cider in the country.

You’ll also find artist-run galleries, bookstores, music, and theater alongside excellent restaurants, unique shops, and comfortable lodging.

The Village of Shelburne Falls features the world famous Bridge of Flowers, the ancient Glacial Potholes, and "movie stars" identifying the film locations for Labor Day and The Judge.

Molly Cantor Pottery (20 Bridge Street): Energy Is All Around Us featuring Wind Turbines and Tiny House Models created by Mohawk High Students Reception with the students/creators from 4-6pm. 


Both projects are aimed at encouraging creatively addressing issues of sustainability. 7th grade students studying with Sam Lydiard made the wind turbines. The 8th grade students are making tiny home scale models of their own design.  Students designed manually a tiny home with a foundation of no more than 500 sq.ft., then replicated the design into an online CAD program, and translated their designs into a scale model made of mainly foam board. Tiny homes are a way to live energy efficiently, reduce waste, and avoid excess "stuff" that will end up in landfills. (Photo left: Mohawk 8th grade students work on their tiny house designs)
