Crossed by two larger and many smaller streams in steep terrain, Leverett’s historic landscape includes the remains of more than fifty water-powered mills (factories), dating from the 1770’s to the late 1800’s. Though historians don’t know exactly how many, the Leverett Historical Commission is working to find out. (If you have a stream-edge site in your back yard, please talk to Susan Mareneck, 413-367-2403 or leveretthistory#ob#vasb#at#tznvy.pbz#ob#.)
Join the community in learning more about the history of these mill foundations and the people who built them on our rivers and streams. Funded by Mass Humanities and Leverett Community Preservation Commission (CPC), with Cathy Stanton of Tufts.
