Montague, a picturesque New England town, was once a hub of manufacturing. This uniquely planned community was established in an area that was well suited to both labor and leisure. The Great Falls offered the power to cover the energy needs for the countless factories along the river's edge as well as its man-made power canal. The newly planned village of Turners Falls and the pleasant living conditions of Montague's other villages led to a growth in population at the beginning of the twentieth century. Immigrants from all over the globe added to the diversity of Montague. The historical photographs in Montague Labor and Leisure show one hundred thirty-five years of captivating history.
