Stockbridge was first settled by English missionaries in 1734, who established it as a praying town for the Mahican Indian tribe known as the Stockbridge Indians. The township was set aside for the tribe by English colonists as a reward for their assistance against the French in the French and Indian Wars. The Reverend John Sergeant was their missionary. Sergeant was succeeded in this post by Jonathan Edwards, a notable Christian theologian associated with the First Great Awakening. The village was officially incorporated in 1739. Stockbridge has long been considered an exceptional model of small-town New England. Stockbridge is home to the Norman Rockwell Museum, Tanglewood, Naumkeag, The Berkshire Theatre Group, Chesterwood, and Berkshire Botanical Garden. The population was 1,947 at the 2010 census. Stockbridge is part of the Berkshire Hills Regional School District.
