‘Clearing the Valley’ set for Sunday

Friday, February 16, 2018

BELCHERTOWN — The Quabbin Visitor Center will offer a free public program titled “Clearing the Valley” on Sunday, Feb. 18, from 2 to 3 p.m. In 1927, the Swift River Valley was home to four towns and more than 2,500 people. Twelve years later, the Quabbin Reservoir began to fill with water.

Join DCR Visitor Center Manager Maria Beiter-Tucker to learn more about this amazing story — how the valley was transformed to a drinking water reservoir and about some of the individuals affected by this dramatic change to the landscape.

The Quabbin Visitor Center is located in the DCR Quabbin Administration

Building at the west end of Winsor Dam in Belchertown. Access to the Center is through the Main (West) Quabbin Park entrance on Route 9, three miles east of the

Route 9/Route 202 intersection. For more information, call 413-323-7221.
