In peaceful Blandford Massachusetts, abandoned farmlands have transformed into forests of beech, maple, hemlock, pine and oak, such as the Chester-Blandford State Forest. The Little River runs through Blandford, a tributary of the mighty Westfield River.
All of the town except for its southwest corner is part of the Westfield River watershed, although the river itself passes north and east of town. The southwest corner of Blandford drains via Otis Reservoir to the Farmington River, which like the Westfield, is a tributary of the Connecticut River.
Ski Blandford used to provide a local opportunity for downhill skiing, sadly, they closed up in 2019. You can still hike up this mountain, but the ski area is gone.
The Blandford Club is a private 9 hole golf course established in 1909.
The Blandford Fair is great fun annually on Labor Day Weekend, held at the Blandford Fairgrounds. Kayaking, canoeing and fishing are also popular activities in this beautiful little town.
Go back in time at the Blandford General Store and Cafe with wooden floors, local foods, and friendly people.
