Believed to be one of the mileposts erected by Elijah Bates "From Springfield Court House to Chester Factories," this marker stood at 80 Main Street for about 150 years. Lawyer Bates, principal owner of the Eighth Mass. Turnpike, built 1800-1805 to connect Westfield with Pittsfield, opened Bates Road for access to the turnpike terminus at the Russell line.
