Montague — Geographical
Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.
Montague, one of the eastern towns of Franklin, lies on the east and south banks of the Connecticut River, and is bounded on the north by the Connecticut, on the south by Sunderland and Leverett, on the east by Erving and Wendell, and on the west by the Connecticut River. Of the 16,520 taxable acres which the town contains, about one-half consists of improved lands. The New London Northern Railroad crosses from the Sunderland line on the south to the village of Miller's Falls in the northeast; the Vermont and Massachusetts branch of the Fitchburg Railroad passes east and west through the centre of the town; and in the northwest corner the Greenfield and Turner's Falls branch of the Fitchburg Railroad connects those two villages.
