September 30, 2013

| Free

The Westborough Historical Society will present a program on the “Four Lost Quabbin Towns” Sept. 30, at 7 p.m., at the Westborough Public Library, 55 West Main St. For almost 30 years, J.R. Greene has been researching and writing about the towns of Prescott, Dana, Enfield, and Greenwich — destroyed in the 1930s to construct the Quabbin Reservoir, which provides drinking water to metropolitan Boston. Hundreds of homes and businesses, and 2,000 people, were displaced. Mr. Greene, who is a member of the Advisory Board of the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, will also be selling his books and calendar. The event is free and open to the public.
