Wachusett Dam & Reservoir

The Houses of Julia D. Pratt

Julia D. Pratt operated a substantial poultry farm located on East Main Street where it met Scar Hill Road rising  from the valley below (near the West Boylston town line). 

Today, the reservoir shoreline divides the property leaving the main poultry shed and the main house on dry land with the remainder submerged in 10-15 feet of water. 

Cellar holes can be seen on Google Earth and are occasionally exposed whenever the reservoir level is lowered.
