The Most Criminally Overlooked Town In Massachusetts And Why You Need To Visit

Massachusetts may not be the largest state on the map, but one thing is certain: if you live on the coast, venturing into the wild and woolly lands of central and western Massachusetts might feel like an expedition into the unknown. If you happen to live in these areas, you know how beautiful and charming the communities there can be.

A perfect example of one such sleepy, untouched gem is the town of Montague. Tucked into the hills of Franklin County, Montague is a quiet community that should be famous for two things: its absolutely gorgeous scenery, and the incredible Montague Bookmill.
