Berkshire Cottages

America's Gilded Age, the post-Civil War and post-Reconstruction era, from 1865 to 1901 saw unprecedented economic and industrial prosperity. As a result of this prosperity, the nation's wealthiest families were able to construct monumental estates in Newport, Rhode Island, Bar Harbor, Maine and The Berkshires in Massachusetts.

Approximately seventy-five estates were built in Lenox and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
