Old Blair Road, North Blandford. Here is the Tannery from across the brook and the Cardboard Factory. 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
