Westfield Reservoir original dam and the beaver swamp in Montgomery. This area has been used and loved since the early hilltown settlers first discovered it, Moose Meadow Brook starts here, next to the old Moore Mountain House where visitors boated here and picked berries along the footpaths along either side of the pond. The brook once powered Snow’s Grist Mill, whip factory, and feeds the old Westfield Reservoir and then flows thru the Tekoa Wildlife area and then to the now drained lower reservoir, flows right thru what once was Falleys Armory and into the great Westfield River.

Park at the junction of Mountain House and Tekoa Road where posted and discover the wild and historic Tekoa Wildlife Area.
