Worthington Is Located In The Massachusetts Berkshires

Worthington Corners Grocery.In the center of town, in one building, is the Corners Grocery and the US Post Office,Worthington Museum. a combination that provides a social meeting place for townspeople. Inside, above the meat counter, is a sign that reads "Corners Grocery - Brad P. Fisk Proprietor, 1796". It is rumored that a group of men gather in the back room for coffee every morning and discuss events around town. How one becomes a member is a closely held secret, but it appears you must come from a family of generations rooted in Worthington.

Worthington Library.To the left and across the street is the Worthington Historical Society which is built on land donated to the town by Merwin and Arlene PackardA short history of Worthington is reproducedWorthington Cemetery, Sam Hill Rd. on this site for your reading. I have added a few photographs to the history that depict typical Worthington lifestyle.

Behind (as you are facing) the Corners Grocery is the library, which can be seen as you are leaving the Corner Grocery.

Near the town center, on a beautiful setting, is the Worthington Inn built in 1780 by Samuel Buck and restored in 1942 by William Gass. Across the street form the Worthington Inn is a white picket fence that leads you to Worthington's Senior Citizen Housing, also located on a spectacular setting by a road lined with old maple trees. Worthington's Senior Citizen Housing.

One of a number of town cemeteries is located on Sam Hill Road, shown here. Headstones date back to the early 1700s. The town meticulously maintains the cemetery which is still a popular burial site for townspeople today.Pumpkins in a stream.

Not far from Worthington Center, in West Chester, a stream crosses under a bridge. A local gentleman works tirelessly in waders to place pumpkins on nearly every rock in the vicinity. Each pumpkin is carved and has a candle, which he lights as night approaches.
