Army Corps of Engineers presentation – Birch Hill Dam

June 5, 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT

Learn about flood control along the Millers River.

Birch Hill Dam is located on the Miller’s River in South Royalston, Mass., and is part of a network of flood damage reduction projects (including sister dam Tully Lake) on tributaries of the Connecticut River. Completed at a cost of $4 million, Birch Hill Dam was one the first dams the Corps of Engineers built in New England to reduce damage caused by floods like those that devastated Athol and Orange in 1936 and 1938.

Crossroads is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
