Fiske, David History of October Mountain State Forest in Western Massachusett History,
Nature- Environment,
Nature- Other
October Mountain State Forest takes in 16,500 acres, making it one of the largest public recreation areas in Massachusetts. Much of the forest was once a sprawling private estate and game preserve, created by William C. Whitney, a man of wealth and prominence. Over time, the game preserve was dismantled and most--but not all--of the animals were relocated. Fire and the elements took their toll on the dormant structures, and the large estate came into the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Various Civilian Conservation Corps projects made this natural resource more accessible and usable by the public. One project in particular created a lake with picnic and camping facilities. Known as Felton Lake, this site has had its share of successes and setbacks, and has seen tragedy and happiness. Today, besides a bridge and dam built by the CCC, only a few ruins of a Boy Scout camp remain at the lake.
