Lenox, Massachusetts Information

Lenox, Massachusetts is a town in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, United States. Set in Western Massachusetts, it is part of the Pittsfield Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 5,025 at the 2010 census.

Lenox is the site of Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Lenox includes the villages of New Lenox and Lenoxdale, and is a tourist destination during the summer.

The area was inhabited by Mahicans, Algonquin speakers who largely lived along the Hudson and Housatonic Rivers. Hostilities during the French and Indian Wars discouraged settlement by European colonial settlers until 1750, when Jonathan and Sarah Hinsdale from Hartford, Connecticut, established a small inn and general store. The Province of Massachusetts Bay thereupon auctioned large tracts of land for 10 townships in Berkshire County, set off in 1761 from Hampshire County.

Lenox, MA Schools

Lenox, Massachusetts operates its own school system for the town’s 800 students. It is the only town in the county whose schools do not have a formal tuition agreement with any other town (other students may attend, however).

The school’s athletic teams are called the “Millionaires”, in acknowledgement of the town’s history, and their colors are maroon and gold. The school’s longtime rivals are the Lee Wildcats.
