About the Town of Rowe
Rowe is a small hilltown in northwestern Massachusetts, bordered on the north by Whitingham, VT. It is nestled in an area of scenic beauty, with wooded mountains, clear brooks and the Deerfield River on its western border. Rowe is close to ski areas and enjoys great hiking, fishing, hunting, canoeing and kayaking. Rowe has its own elementary school for grades Pre K to 6, a school of choice. Grades 7-12 attend the Mohawk Trail Regional High School or Franklin County Technical School.
The Rowe Historical Society maintains an excellent small historical museum, containing antiques, artifacts and numerous photographs documenting the history of the town, including the construction of the Hoosac Tunnel, and the operation of both the Davis Mine and the recently-decommissioned Yankee Nuclear Power Station. The close knit community enjoys a solid tax base provided by several hydro-electric facilities located in Rowe on the Deerfield River.
