Blackstone Valley, Massachusetts
The Blackstone Valley is the land area surrounding the Blackstone River as it wends its way through lower central Massachusetts and down into Rhode Island. The Blackstone River provides transportation, power, and fresh water to this area's residents. Many towns have sprung up along the river's length, and historically a number of mills used the current to generate power. In recent times the river is used for canoing and recreation.
