Welcome to Leverett

Leverett, Massachusetts
Situated in western Massachusetts, Leverett is neighbor to the Five College area of Amherst, Hampshire, Smith, Mt. Holyoke and the University of Massachusetts.

Its diverse population of 2,000 is a rich mixture of teachers, students, farmers, lumbermen, gardeners, artists, professionals in the areas of medicine, law, and telecommunications.

Leverett is unusually rich in scenic beauty. Rattlesnake Gutter Road, in the heart of the town, is a two mile road through a glacial ravine, bordered by Brushy Mountain. The Sawmill River cascades over rocks in Moore’s Corner, before coming to the North Leverett millpond, and its picturesque historic mill. Leverett Pond, in the center of town, is a place of quiet beauty. The first Peace Pagoda in the U.S. sits majestically at the top of Cave Hill. Road names, such as Juggler Meadow, Teawaddle Hill, Cider Mill, Number Six, Rat Hollow, intrigue the traveler.

 Listening System Available for all Town-Sponsored Events

In order to make town government and public meetings accessible to the hearing impaired, the Town has purchased and installed assistive listening systems in the Town Hall and Library. These systems allow hearing impaired citizens to more fully understand what is being said at town events.  The systems are FM based transmitters that require the use of an FM receiver that is provided by the Town. The receivers can be used with headphones or a neck loop if the person uses hearing aids with t-coils. The systems are available for all town board, committee, and public events in town buildings. Participants who have used the system (at last year’s Town Meeting and at public meeting concerning school regionalization) report that the system works well and makes participation in meetings a lot easier.
