Rowe

Description:

Rowe is a small, remote town along the northern border of Franklin County, just south of the Vermont line. Originally the site of fishing and foraging for local Native American tribes, Rowe was later settled and finally incorporated in 1785. The mills on the Deerfield River led to industry growth in the town, in sulfur, talc, and soapstone mining. In the 20th century, Rowe became the site of the first nuclear power plant in New England, Yankee Rowe Nuclear Power Station. Today, the plant is decommissioned but the Bear Swamp pumped storage generating station, built in 1974, is still in operation.

Area Info:
The Outdoors

Like its neighbor Monroe, Rowe is attractive to visitors for its access to the Deerfield River. The sections of river in Rowe have milder whitewater than those of Monroe and are great for fishing, boating, and tubing. Another beautiful fishing area is Pelham Lake Park. There, a beach area is available to town residents plus trails for hiking and snowmobiling.

Town/Cultural Events

In July, the town celebrates Old Home Day. The celebration includes a children’s fishing derby, boat rides, antique tractors, and fireworks.
