Charlemont, Massachusetts, is on the Mohawk Trail--the primary Indian route between the Hudson River Valley and the Connecticut River Valley. Charlemont is bisected by the Deerfield River. Because of its location on the Mohawk Trail, it was the site of a very early flow of tourists. Curtis Guild, Jr. was governor of Massachusetts from 1906 to 1909, and his visit to Charlemont was commemorated with this postcard. The road pictured is the Mohawk Trail or Route 2.
