Babson Reservoir, 1930

Here is early construction of the Babson Reservoir 1930). It's still the main source of water for the City of Gloucester, along with Goose Cove (1963). The Babson family gave the reservoir to the City in return for keeping it a natural park.

  • Very interesting photo. I had no idea the reservoir was built so recently! It looks as though it has been around forever.

  • Looks like quite a deal all the way around and a I remember the stone bridge (127) that went over by goose cove – lobster cove outlet – going into gloucester drove this going to beeman school or the bus going into town and walked many a time.
