Where is Egremont, Massachusetts, USA? 

Egremont, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA

Egremont was first settled in 1722 by Dutch settlers from New York. English settlers arrived a few years later, and the town was officially incorporated by Massachusetts in 1761. It is unclear whether the town is named for the English town or for the first Earl of Egremont, whose title was created shortly after Egremont's settlement.wikipedia
