April 28, 1938 is the day that marked the official disestablishment of four Massachusetts towns. Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott were replaced by the Quabbin Reservoir, completely changing the landscape of the Swift River Valley and changing the surrounding region forever. Please join us as DCR Quabbin Visitor Center Manager Maria Beiter-Tucker shares history of the Swift River Valley as well as how the Reservoir became known as the “Accidental Wilderness.”

Please register by calling (978) 249-9515.

Free and open to the Public.
