Its boundaries are, Huntington in Hampshire County on the north, Westfield and Russell on the south, Southampton and Westfield on the east, and Russell and Huntington on the west.
      The railway station nearest to Montgomery is the one at Russell village, about four miles from Montgomery Centre.
