Monterey is a town in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. It is part of the Pittsfield, Massachusetts Metropolitan Statistical Area. Monterey was first settled in 1739 as a part of Housatonic Township Number One. The township had two villages, along Hop Brook to the north (modern Tyringham) and Konkapot River in the south (modern Monterey). The town was officially incorporated as Tyringham in 1767. In the earliest days of 1776, General Henry Knox passed through the town, bringing cannons from Fort Ticonderoga in New York to aid in ending the Siege of Boston. Today, the path he took (along Route 23) is known as the Knox Trail. However, the long divide between the two towns led to their separation in 1847. Previously called Green Woods, the local people voted to name the new town Monterey to commemorate the Battle of Monterrey that took place a year earlier in the Mexican-American War. Palo Alto and Buena Vista were also considered, but thought to be "too foreign sounding." The town was mostly known for its sawmills
