Egremont was first settled by Dutch settlers from New York in 1722. English settlers arrived in 1725-6, 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 the settlement of the town. Egremont has spent much of its time as an agricultural town, with only a small milling area around South Egremont.
Around New Year’s Day, 1776, General Henry Knox passed through the town with cannons from Fort Ticonderoga, which he was bringing to help end the Siege of Boston. Today, the path is known as the Knox Trail, and a historical marker is located in the village of North Egremont.
