Day 18, Friday, Sept 19 Stockbridge, Mass

This was taken on the grounds of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass. We visited this area during our 35th Wedding Anniversary trip to New England in the Fall of '97. It was great to visit here again and see that it all looks relatively unchanged. Stokbridge was only a 20 minute drive from our hotel in Lenox, Mass. We decided to take a couple of days here in the beautiful Berkshire area of western Massachusetts, which is so rich in the New England tradition of small, picturesque villages tucked into quiet little spots among the hills and hardwood forests that cover this part of the Northeast.

These few small, old fashioned stores in downtown Stockbridge have been made famous because of Norman Rockwell's illustrations that depict this area.
While Linda was looking through the little shops in downtown Stockbridge, Mass I crossed the street and went inside an old Episcopal Church and took pictures of some of the beautiful stained glass windows.
