Squakheag Village, located in the historic town center of Northfield, was named for a local Native American tribe. The development is made up for four indepdendent two-story buildings that form a "horseshoe" colonial design around a courtyard community center, which provides a sense of neighborhood and privacy.
The property contains twenty (20) one-bedroom units in three connected buildings, including two units for persons with mobility impairments. All units are accessible via elevator, and the second story walkway has been graded for wheelchair accessibility. The fourth building contains laundry facilities, a sitting room, and a large community room with a full kitchen.
