English missionaries settled it in 1734, for the Mahican Indian tribe. A special museum was open in 1969 in Stockbridge, where an original artist lived the last 25 years of his life. In addition to 574 original works of art by that man, the museum also houses his archives. Is an art museum in Stockbridge (Massachusetts), dedicated to the art of a creative artist.

On Thanksgiving Day 1965, while in Stockbridge, he (then 18 years old), was arrested for illegally dumping on private property a half-ton of garbage from the home of his friends, Ray and Alice.

ALICE’S RESTAURANT MASSACREE – You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant. You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant. Walk right in; it is around the back, just a half a mile from the railroad track. You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant. This song is called “Alice’s Restaurant. It is about Alice, and the restaurant, but “Alice’s Restaurant” is not the name of the restaurant, that is just the name of the song that is why I call the song “Alice’s Restaurant.” Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, two years ago, on Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the restaurant, but Alice doesn’t live in the restaurant, she lives in the church nearby the restaurant, in the bell tower with her husband Ray and Facha, the dog. And living. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m57gzA2JCcM
