A beautiful town center, with shops and restaurants. Surrounded by natural beauty and cultural activities, Lenox has something for everyone!
Living in Lenox for my entire life (nineteen years) is something I am grateful for. I was raised in a great neighborhood where many kids my own age also lived. The community is exceptionally safe, friendly, and close-knitted. Lenox is the kind of town where everyone knows everyone. Everyone supports the Lenox High soccer team, everyone attends to Apple-Squeeze (a fall festival), and everyone participates at Halloween. I love my town with all of my heart. It is filled with spirit and love for one another. I feel safe and secure when I am in Lenox. It is my home and my heart!
