Town of Westhampton
The town of Westhampton is a small, rural community in Hampshire County. It is characterized by rolling hills and a country atmosphere, yet this rural town is quickly becoming an attractive residential community. Over the last 30 years, the town has nearly doubled in population and is now approximately 1,700 residents.
Wood products, lumber and farming are important town industries. There are several dairy farms and orchards that continue to operate full-time. Maple sugar houses can be seen throughout the town, and many residents engage in maple sugaring in the spring. The town center provides a picturesque setting with a library, town hall, church and town common. The nearby Westhampton Blacksmith Shop Museum continues to preserve the history of the town through a vast collection of memorabilia donated by residents.
Westhampton offers an elementary school, a library rebuilt in 2010 and a regional junior/senior high school located in the center of town that is shared with four neighboring towns. The town celebrates a fall festival each year that is popular with the surrounding communities.
