Alford is a very small hill town with one of the lowest tax rates in the Commonwealth which is why it is so desirable to out-of-town, second home residents. The town is quiet and lovely with gentle rolling hills and a few farms. People in the town are very engaged in the area and very environmentally conscious. If you are looking for a town with gorgeous property that is within an easy drive to New York City, Alford is a great place to begin your search.
