Once a bustling mill town, Lee has undergone one of the most dramatic transformations in all of the Berkshires. A downtown revitalization project not only helped to preserve Main Street’s antique brick and clapboard buildings—now on the National Register of Historic Places—but also brought a variety of community services and events to the area. The 60-store Premium Outlets complex boasts some of the best shopping in the county. And a new business park on Route 102 has brought additional shopping and a major supermarket to this business-minded town.
Lee, which was a filming location in the movies Before and After and The Cider House Rules, is often called the Gateway to the Berkshires both because it’s the first town off the Massachusetts Turnpike Exit 2 and because its central location makes it the ideal entry point to the variety of outdoor-recreation and cultural offerings across the county. Lee’s community is made up of a mix of longtime local residents and recently transplanted young professionals, and the town provides an eclectic variety of dining, lodging, and entertainment options, including seasonal festivals and performances, so you’ll always find something new to do an explore.
