Quoted as the best historical experience in the Quabbin Reservoir property, the 1.5 mile walk to Dana Center passes through woodlands and open fields leading you to the town common dotted with cellar holes. You'll be able to view photos of what the common looked like before townspeople were ordered to leave in the 1930's for the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir, the source of Boston's public drinking water. This gentle-paced walk will take place on old, unmaintained roads over moderate to level terrain. Primitive facilities available near Dana Center.
