Monterey, or “Green Woods” as it was then called, was established in 1735 to help develop a wilderness trail, and was the original settlement of Tyringham. In 1847, the southern portion of Tyringham became Monterey, named after one of Zachary Taylor’s victorious battles in Mexico. Originally an industrial center with factories, mills and a thriving fur industry, the town metamorphosed into a summer resort town and today has a creative, independent, artistic flair.
A marked hiking trail extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine, running through many towns in the Berkshires.
