Here's a great one -- the Quabbin Reservoir. This is the source of fresh water for Boston. The reservoir was created in something like the 1920s or 1930s, and in its creation about 5 small towns were destroyed. The area is beautiful, and you can hike in to some sites that are like ghost towns. Can't remember exactly which town we saw last fall, but quite a few of the building foundations are preserved (since they didnt interfere with the clean water purpose -- but all graves were moved, all plumbing was removed, and all the inhabitants had to move away). Perhaps the town I am thinking of is Dana or Enfield? Dana, I believe. It's about a 3 or 4 mile walk in from where you must leave your car. It's beautiful and haunting. There are a number of entrances to the Quabbin reservoir for pedestrians. Some have very good bird watching, and I have seen bald eagles in the area. The Quabbin is west of Worcester.
