A Look At Shelburne Falls, Part 2: I often pass through Shelburne Falls, MA, when out riding. Once known as Salmon Falls, Shelburne Falls is a historic and picturesque village that sits in the towns of Buckland and Shelburne, spanning the Deerfield River. Settled around 1760, mills spring up around the falls beginning sometime after 1775 and the area shifted from agricultural to industrial. One of the country's premier and oldest cutlery makers, Lamson and Goodnow, had their headquarters and factory here. Founded in 1837, Lampson and Goodnow went bankrupt in 2014, sold off the factory property in 2015 and moved most of its operation to Westfield, MA. Below are some new and old pictures of that industrial property, which was sold to a developer out of Ashfield who wants to restore the factory buildings. Several years ago, we happened by when they were attempting to save one of the oldest factory buildings by deconstructing and saving what was still good.. Below is how the old building looked in 2016 before deconstruction began. Below are various recent and older pictures of the Lamson mill and factory that were taken when riding through Shelburne Falls. More to follow.
