Greenfield, MA

Greenfield is the county seat for Franklin County. Located at the confluence of the Green, Deerfield and Connecticut Rivers, as well as two rail lines, it developed as a trade center, first settled in 1686. The town was incorporated in 1753 and governed by town council until 2003, when it revised its charter to become a city, governed by a mayor.
