Long Description:
The Deerfield River divides the village of Shelburne Falls. The east side is in the town of Shelburne and the west side is in the town of Buckland. The Shelburne Falls Mosaic Project was a community wide effort to celebrate the beauty of the rural area around Shelburne Falls. Artist Cynthia Fisher designed and created 10 3’ x 3’ mosaic panels that represent each of the hill-towns of this area of western Massachusetts. In addition, the project included two larger panels entitled "The Deerfield River" and the "American Indian Portrait".

The visitors center has a map showing the location the 12 mosaics. Each mosaic is labelled from 1 to 12. The Town of Rowe is number 11. The mosaic for the Town of Rowe depicts a rural landscape with a Canada Goose, river otter, red-winged blackbird, sunfish, gazebo, and the year of incorporation - 1785.
