The North River is a river, approximately 8 miles (13 km) long, in eastern Massachusetts, the United States. It is primarily a tidal river, formed by the confluence of the Indian Head River and Herring Brook. The North River forms the boundary between the towns of Norwell and Pembroke, Massachusetts, and downstream, the boundary between Scituate and Marshfield. The river flows into Massachusetts Bay.
The North River is a great resource for Norwell and surrounding towns, including Scituate, Marshfield, Pembroke, and Hanover,...and always has been. It played an especially important part of Norwell's economic history, and now contributes as a recreational asset for great four-season recreation.
