Becket, MA was established back in 1765 in an effort to make a wilderness trail that connected the lower Housatonic Valley with the Connecticut Valley and Boston safer to travel. In its early days Becket, MA had a population of only a few, only about 414 residents in 1776, but now the town has around 1700 residents. Becket is loved by fisherman because it has one of the best trout streams in the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts. It is also home to Jacobs Pillow Dance and the Becket Arts Center.
