    This site, run by the Berkshire County Historical Society, offers information about and pictures of Arrowhead, home of Herman Melville from 1850-1863. Melville was living at Arrowhead when he met Hawthorne in August of 1850 on a picnic on Monument Mountain, and Hawthorne visited Melville there. It was at Arrowhead, too, that Melville wrote his most famous work, Moby-Dick. Arrowhead is now a museum owned and operated by the Berkshire County Historical Society, a non-profit corporation.
