Sunderland — Geographical

Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.

      Sunderland, one of the extreme southern towns in Franklin, is pleasantly located on the Connecticut River, which forms its entire western border. Its boundaries are Montague on the north, Hampshire County on the south, Leverett on the east, and Whately and Deerfield (separated from Sunderland by the Connecticut River) on the west. The town covers an area of fifteen square miles, measures six miles in length by two and a half in width, and contains 9600 acres.
      The New London Northern Railroad crosses the town at its northeastern extremity, but there is no station in the town.
