Welcome to Montague, MA

The Town of Montague, comprised of five villages, is nestled along the Connecticut River in the upper Pioneer Valley.

Montague is a diverse area that is rich in history and culture that includes more than 10,000 years of early Native American habitation, as well as the Colonial and Industrial history that is embodied in the National Historic Register Districts of Montague Center and Turners Falls – a planned industrial community.

The Town’s landscape, 31.5 square miles, is a rare combination of rolling hills, fertile farmlands, historic mills and residential villages. It is a thriving town of 8,580 people that offers a unique mixture of business and industrial opportunities, easily accessible to Route 2 and Interstate 91. Montague is also perfectly situated among New England’s finest skiing, canoeing, hiking and biking opportunities, including the Turners Falls Bikeway.

The Town prides itself on a lively arts community and convenient access to the cultural resources of the “Five College Area”. The Town's public arts program known as, RiverCulture, promotes arts/culture and the creative economy of Montague. Turners Falls, which is one of the five villages of Montague, was recently described in a Boston Globe travel feature article as “historic, but not traditional; Fossils and a funky art scene share the spotlight in the tiny mill village of Turners Falls.”
