Townsend Harbor

These buildings are in a historic part of Townsend, MA called Townsend Harbor. It sits along the Squannacook Brook by a millpond. Dams that once channeled water to use for power are still in place. The building in the top photo is now an antique shop and the one in the photo below has a sign that says “Grist Mill”. According to Wikipedia, these were once used to make a type of artificial leather from pulpwood and scraps of leather. They date back to at least 1873.

      It is a nice spot. It’s not far from home and I can’t believe it took me this long to go over and take some pictures. The COVID-19 problems are making me think about places to take photos closer to home.

        Cool, Chris! I’m noticing that the WP app is not notifying me of comment activity yesterday and today. Are you having any technical issues too?
