Brought To You By Eminent Domain

It being a beautiful fall day, we took a ride up to the Quabbin Reservoir, Boston's main source of drinking water. The Quabbin was formed by damming a small valley in the late '30s and early '40s. Four towns, Enfield, Prescott, Dana and Greenwich, were disincorporated and the land handed off to other surrounding towns. Portions of each town are now underwater, most of the homes having been either razed or moved.
