Swift River Valley Historical Society keeps alive the stories of the four towns “lost” to create the Quabbin Reservoir, which supplies the residents of the greater Boston area with water—Dana, Enfield, Greenwich and Prescott. Their towns are lost, but their stories are not.
From the lovely silk wedding gowns of three sisters who promised each other as young girls to marry at the same time to an ordinary pair of shoes, all objects in the museum’s collection tell part of the story of life before the Quabbin.
