Ashfield — Stage Route

Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.

      The first regular stage-route through the town was private weekly post-route which passed between Northampton and Ashfield, via Whately Centre, in 1789. On March 23, 1824, the daily mail-stage from Greenfield to Troy passed through the town for the first time, on the central-county road.
