The Village Association

In 1972, friends and neighbors established the New Marlborough Village Association to advance the history of the area and to provide cultural opportunities in New Marlborough and neighboring communities.

The NMVA’s mission is:

  • To undertake restoration of the historic 1839 Meeting House, a splendid Greek revival structure designed by the noted architect Henry Sykes, and to ensure ongoing maintenance of the Village Green.
  • To foster interest in and appreciation of the natural beauty, historical traditions, and architectural heritage of New Marlborough, which celebrated its 250th anniversary of incorporation in 2009.
  •  To sponsor and otherwise promote public programming intended to enhance the artistic, cultural and civic life of our community and the surrounding southern Berkshire County area.

The Meeting House requires ongoing attention and tender loving care as we seek to maintain and expand its use as a cultural and community center.  With no full-time staff, we are almost entirely dependent on volunteers to accomplish our mission. Please consider joining the Village Association and lending a hand, both literally and financially, to support our program, building and grounds.

Thank you for your interest in the New Marlborough Village Association.

Ben Harms, President
