Wrentham State Forest Improvements – Wrentham MA

Description

The Massachusetts Department of Forestry acquired “one thousand acres of land in Wrentham and Plainville” in 1934. CCC labor was utilized to “clean up the underbrush, make the woodroads into real roads, rebuild old dams which have been down for many years, stock the ponds with fish, and set out young pine trees.”
