The Mount wins Greylock award

This summer, The Mount, Chesterwood, Hancock Shaker Village, and The Norman Rockwell Museum launched the American Icons joint discounted ticket promotion, a new collaborative effort that brought the four national treasures together for the first time. Starting on August 1, 2008, Berkshire county residents and visitors from near and far were able to purchase a "Pick Two" pass or an "American Icons" pass for all four cultural organizations at a discounted admission rate. The program offered a comprehensive experience of the best that the Berkshires has to offer at a great price. As a result of this new promotion, the Berkshire Visitor's Bureau recently awarded The Mount and its collaborators a new Greylock Award for Outstanding Industry Collaboration. American Icons was so successful that the four venues intend to partner again next summer.

We hope you will come and visit us next season, and be able to take advantage of these wonderful Berkshires treasures!
