Northfield, Mass. Town Travel Business Information

Located on the banks of the Connecticut River, Northfield, Massachusetts is divided into two villages; East Northfield and West Northfield. In the late nineteenth century, the development of Northfield was sparked by evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody, a native who established the Northfield Seminary for Girls in 1879. Moody’s school became the site for many religious conferences that attracted thousands of visitors to Northfield each summer. In turn, the amount of visitors triggered demand for summer housing, and eventually the Northfield became a prime resort town.
