Heath is a Massachusetts hill town midway between the Connecticut River and the New York state line, along the Vermont Border. From any direction it is a climb to reach Heath's town center, which consists of the Heath Union Church, the Community Center, some town offices in the old Grange building, the library and the post office. Also on the windswept common are the old general store, which now serves as a home, the 1834 Town Hall and the 1844 one-room schoolhouse, both traditional white clapboard New England style buildings, and a large colonial house and barn. A mile to the north and higher on the hill are the Heath Fairgrounds. In mid-August each year, one of the last old time country fairs occurs here. Farmer owners with teams of oxen or draft horses strive mightily to pull the greatest weight. In the Exhibit Hall local cooks, gardeners and artisans compete for prizes. Vistas open from many spots in Heath; west to Greylock, north to the Green Mountains of Vermont, northeast to Monadnock, south to the Mount Holyoke Range. In what was once a farm community, few family farms remain. The beauty of Heath's setting has attracted summer residents looking for country living in an attractive location. Among them have been several new "Heathens" who were prominent clergy, most famous being Reinhold Niebuhr, who first coined his serenity prayer in the Heath Union Church. Many who summer here are so taken with its charm that they retire to Heath; others are local craftsmen and those who want to make their homes in Heath despite the rigorous commute.
