Turners Falls is a significant feature on the Connecticut River, located in the town of Montague, Massachusetts. Named after Captain William Turner, who played a key role in the region’s Indian Wars, the falls stretch 1000 feet long and 30 feet high. The area around the falls was traditionally shared by several Native American tribes due to the abundance of salmon and shad available there. Today, the falls are part of a larger hydroelectric power generation system, which includes the Cabot Station. The Turners Falls area is rich in history and offers a unique blend of natural beauty and industrial heritage.
