Deerfield River, New England
This beautiful and important Indian stream joins the Connecticut between Greenfield and Deerfield. It rises in the high grounds of Windham county, near Stratton, Dover and Somerset, Vermont; and proceeding in a S.E. course, it passes through Monroe, Florida, Rowe, Charlemont, Hawley, Buckland, Shelburne and Conway. The most important tributaries to this stream are Cold river; a river from Heath and Coleraine; one from Leyden, via Greenfield, and a river from Conway. Its whole length is about 50 miles. In some places Deerfield river is rapid and its banks very precipitous. Its passage through the mountains is very curious and romantic.
