The 4,135-acre reservoir was built between 1897-1908 by damming the South Branch of the Nashua river. Water was sent via an aqueduct to the Weston reservoir. It now receives some of its water from Quabbin Reservoir and still supplies the Boston area.
Catch a variety of fish along the Reservoir's shore.
