Turkeyhill Brook Falls
Moore State Park
Paxton, MA 295K
|Consisting of 700 acres, Moore State Park has diverse offerings within a small local. The park seems to have a little bit of everything. Centrally located within the park, are archorlogical remnants of Paxton's old milling village which operated from 1747 to 1927. There's a historical 1 room school house which later was incorporated into the Spaulding Estate, hand laid stone foundations and dams, including a restored sawmill structure. Turkeyhill Brook has 3 dams, 1 grist mill/blacksmith pond and a natural cascading waterfall. In addition, and specifically special to this historic landscape, are the multitude of ornamental shrubs, rhododendrons and azaleas. During the months of May and June their exquisite blooming and diverse varieties can be a spectacle to behold.|
