Montague

Description:

Montague is another cultural hub of Franklin County. North of Leverett, it is composed of five villages: Montague Center, Montague City, Turners Falls, Millers Falls, and Lake Pleasant. To the west of Montague is the Connecticut River, where a dam and canal were built to provide cheap power for mills in the 1800s. Today, the dam in Turners Falls has a fish ladder, which allows fish to swim upstream to spawn. A viewing facility allows visitors to watch the fish climb a series of ladders to overcome the dam.

Montague is bordered by Greenfield to the northwest, Deerfield to the west, Leverett to the south, and Wendell to the east. MA Route 2 runs just north of Montague and MA Routes 47 and 63 run north to south through the town.
