Montague, Franklin, MA

Confusing to the uninitiated are the five villages, which make up the Town of Montague: Turners Falls, Montague Center, Millers Falls, Lake Pleasant and Montague City.

The Town had its origins in what is now the village of Montague Center (1754), which is no longer the town center. That distinction now belongs to Turners Falls (1868), site of the current town hall and government functions and the town’s commercial center. montague-ma.gov

Montague includes: Turners Falls, Lake Pleasant, and Millers Falls.
