The lesser-known villages of the quabbin valley



 The area within the quabbin boundaries known as Doubleday village is a fairly remote area of land located on the northeastern side of the quabbin watershed near Petersham , Approximately 24 people called this place home. There are many old roads and stonewalls that seem to wander endlessly through the hills.
Several ponds and streams are visible along the way and it makes for a most enjoyable hike.
