Credits for this website

We thank these folks for this website…

Our greatest thanks needs to be directed towards the dozens of Pittsfield residents who, over the past two centuries, have recorded and reported upon scenes and events in our town. Without their efforts each era of the history of Pittsfield would fade with the passing of each generation. With their help, however, we are able to recount images and stories of how we got here, of what has come before any living memory can recall. This website is an effort to continue telling that story to future generations. Our apologies to those contributors who we may have omitted through oversight.

Leroy Wilson Coons photo collection).
