Description In 1897, the Nashua River above the town of Clinton was impounded by the Wachusett Dam. 4,380 acres (17.5 km) were flooded in the towns of Boylston, West Boylston, Clinton, and Sterling. Work was completed in 1905 and the reservoir first filled in May 1908. West Boylston's prominent landmark The Old Stone Church was left remaining as a reminder of those that lost their homes and jobs to the building of the reservoir. It is one of the most photographed sites in the area. When it was built, the Wachusett Reservoir was the largest public water supply reservoir in the world and the largest body of water in Massachusetts. It has since been surpassed by the Quabbin Reservoir
John Kapusta, Cape Coral, FL Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Welcome and thank you for visiting my galleries.
My body of work is to capture through the lens the beauty of nature, the environment around us and the interaction of people within these parameters.
My photos are from the New England area where I reside as well as areas I visit in my travels. I want to create a message to portray the beauty around us and to stimulate our sense of sight as well as stir the soul.
