Old Blair Road, North Blandford. Notice the loggers for cables, just below the road here was a Tannery and a Turning mill 1857. We knew it was all here, figuring out what buildings were where and when is difficult. The cardboard factory came later. The historical importance of this area is immense as generations lived and worked here thru road changes and the trolley line being built. It was a major industrial area, highly populated in every way. Multiple changes are evident from the 1857, 1894 to 1920 maps. #hikethehilltowns with the #westernmasshilltownhikers #hilltownhistory #blandfordma
