Joining Hands in Ashfield


Today, St. John’s Episcopal and the First Congregational Church are choosing to work together to serve a population that is aging and communities that are changing. Ashfield has had a second-home population for many decades, and that will continue as Franklin County becomes more and more like Berkshire County where over 50 percent of properties are held by out-of-town owners. On the aging front, Ashfield has the second oldest population in Franklin County after Heath. The average age of our region’s residents is over 60.
