Swift River Valley Historical SocietySwift River Valley Historical Society


40 Elm Street
New Salem, MA
978-544-6882
Website

In 1938, this vast area was home to four towns flooded as part of the Quabbin construction.  The Swift River Historical Society exists to preserve the legacies of these four towns: Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott. As residents in these towns were forced to leave behind their homes, farms, and businesses, the Historical Society aims to care for their former objects and reminiscences. The organization also provides a glimpse at life in the Swift River Valley prior to the events of the Quabbin Reservoir.
