Charlemont Software was founded in 1992 in a run down, old farmhouse with a great view in Charlemont, Massachusetts. We continue entertaining friends from coast to coast with stories of the flying squirrels, black bear, moose, wild turkeys and even the occasional emu that share our home and office space.
