Saturday, March 7, 2015, at 1 pm, Dale Monette presents “Visions of the Past” at the Great Falls Discovery Center in Turners Falls. The public program compares images of properties in the Swift River Valley before the Quabbin Reservoir was constructed 77 years ago―with views of each location photographed from the same vantage point today. The program, sponsored by the Swift River Valley Historical Society, is free.
The Swift River Valley Historical Society, located at 40 Elm Street in New Salem, MA, keeps alive the stories of the villages and four “lost” towns—Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott— destroyed to create the Quabbin Reservoir.
