Pittsfield is the largest city and the county seat of Berkshire County, Massachusetts, United States. It is the third-largest municipality in Western Massachusetts, behind only Springfield and Chicopee. Pittsfield was named after British nobleman and politician William Pitt. The town was a bustling metropolis by the late 19th century. In September 2018, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, and other officials attended the groundbreaking of a $13.7 million project to build a life sciences and manufacturing center in the city. The Arts Vibrancy Index compiled by the National Center for Arts Research ranked the city as the number-one, medium-sized community in the nation for the arts. The city's population was 43,927 at the 2020 census, and has declined in recent decades, although it remains the third largest municipality in western Massachusetts. It was the site of the 1902 Presidential Incident, during a two-week tour through New England campaigning for the Republican president. The president collided with a trolley head-on with Governor Winthrop Murray, secretary of state to George Cortelyou, and President Theodore Roosevelt, while campaigning for president in New England. The incident occurred at the Pittsfields Country Club, which is now a tourist attraction. The U.S. National Park Service is based in the town, but has no plans to open a park in the near future. It has been home to the National Museum of American History, which was founded in 1851.

History

Pittsfield was named after British nobleman and politician William Pitt. The Mohicans, an Algonquian people, inhabited Pittsfield and the surrounding area until the early 1700s. The town was primarily an agricultural area because of the many brooks that flowed into the Housatonic River. With the introduction of Merino sheep from Spain in 1807, the area became the center of woolen manufacturing in the United States. In 1902, a trolley carrying President Theodore Roosevelt collided with a head-on collision with a barouche transporting him to the country club. The trolley driver, Euclid Madden, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and was sentenced to six months in jail and a heavy fine. In 2004, historian John Thorn discovered a reference to a 1791 law prohibiting anyone from playing "baseball" within 80 yards of the new "base" (73 m) of the town's new baseball stadium. The city's population in 1930 had grown to more than 50,000. In 2018, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, and other Baker administration officials attended the groundbreaking of a $13.7 million project to build a life sciences and advanced manufacturing center in the city. General Dynamics occupies many of the old GE buildings and its workforce is expanding.
