THE STORY

When the Montague Sawmill first opened here in the early 1800s, it served as a hub for the community: the place where folks would grind their grain, a stop on their daily commute, part of their weekly routine. The Alvah Stone aims to be that same neighborhood hub, serving creative, delicious food and regional craft beers, wines, and cocktails in an environment that is casual, modern, and distinctly its own.

A destination spot for visitors, and a community gathering hub for locals in a comfortable, familiar setting. Food & drink at the Montague Mill. 
Make us your spot.

We invite you to explore some of our stories on the right side of this page.

 

ALVAH STONE

Alvah Stone was the first proprietor of the Bookmill building, which was originally known as “Stone’s Gristmill.” Born in Sutton, MA on November 25, 1793 to Elijah Stone and Sarah Bartlett, Stone married Tamar Paunise Cudworth and eventually settled in Montague, MA. Stone left behind the legacy of the mill building that now acts as a unique cultural destination for Montague and surrounding areas. So, Alvah – thanks for picking this spot!

THE MILL

Located on the Sawmill River in Montague, MA, the mill was originally used to grind grain by Montague individuals, families, and businesses. Now it mills books, as well as being home to The Alvah Stone, The Lady Killigrew Café, and other nearby shops and offices. Read more of the mill’s history here.
