Located on the Connecticut River on the New Hampshire border, Northfield was established in 1671 by a small group of settlers from around Northampton and destroyed by Indians. It was incorporated in 1723 after one more failed attempt. It is the home to a number of historical sites and antique shops and also where Northfield-Mt. Hermon school is located. The Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center, owned by Northeast Utilities, is an attraction for hikers, climbers, cross-country skiiers and nature lovers. Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Station hydroelectric plant offers tours through the Center.
