About the north river

The North River is a 23-mile-long river that flows through eastern Massachusetts. Its headwaters are located in the town of Hanover, and it flows through the towns of Pembroke and Marshfield before emptying into Massachusetts Bay. The river was historically used for transportation and power, with mills and factories located along its banks. Today, it is primarily used for recreational purposes, with opportunities for fishing, kayaking, and hiking. The North River is also home to several reservoirs, including the Accord Pond Reservoir and the Furnace Pond Reservoir, which are used for drinking water and irrigation. The river is also home to several dams, including the Union Street Dam in Marshfield, which provides hydroelectric power. Agricultural uses of the North River include cranberry cultivation in the surrounding bogs.
