The Deerfield River is a significant waterway that runs for 76 miles from southern Vermont through northwestern Massachusetts to the Connecticut River. Historically, it played a crucial role in the settlement of western Franklin County, Massachusetts, and its namesake town. The river is one of the most heavily dammed rivers in the country, with a dam almost every 7 miles for its entire length. It is home to the Montague Bookmill, a former grist mill now housing a bookstore, a music shop, and two restaurants. The Deerfield River also offers various recreational activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, paddling, boating, and fishing.
