Yelp reply empty Shutesbury


Incorporated in 1735 - Franklin County

The Town of Shutesbury has carried some of its past history forward. Once known as a lumbering town, Shutesbury still retains some lumbering interests. Named for Governor Samuel Shute, the town was established in 1761 and its plentiful mineral springs resulted in a healthy bottling business growing up in the community. Shutesbury is bordered by the Quabbin Reservoir, and the town's proximity to the huge body of water ensures preservation of some of its rural character because of the restrictions placed on development within the watershed of the Quabbin. The reservoir itself also creates opportunities for fishing and hiking. Shutesbury serves as a getaway for those that work at the University and in more populated areas. Lake Wyola, at the North end of Shutesbury offers a multitude of recreational outlets. (Narrative based on information provided by the Massachusetts Historical Commission)
