Clearing the Valley
Wednesday, May 24 @ 6:00
In 1927 the Swift River Valley was home to four towns and over 2000 people. Twelve years later the Quabbin Reservoir began to fill with water. How was the valley transformed? This presentation will focus on the process of clearing and the history of some of the families and individuals affected.
Presented by Maria Beiter-Tucker, Quabbin Visitor Center Manager.
Registration is required.
Free and open to the public, this event is made possible by a Museum on Main Street grant via the Smithsonian Institute.
Crossroads is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
