An Autumn View of the Quabbin by SummerJade

An Autumn View of the Quabbin by 

The Quabbin Reservoir located in central Massachusetts was built in the 1930’s to provide clean drinking water for the Boston region. Over 2500 people in the towns of Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, Prescott, and parts of seven other towns, were forced to give up their homes in the Swift River Valley to make this project possible. Today, Quabbin is recognized as one of the largest drinking-water reservoirs in the world, a remarkable feat of engineering, an “accidental wilderness” that is home to an impressive variety of wildlife, and a place that brings bittersweet memories to many who once lived there.

The word “Quabbin” is a Nipmuck Indian word that roughly translates to “the meeting place of many waters”. The Nipmucks inhabited the Swift River Valley and referred to this area as the Quabbin
