Burrage Pond Wildlife Management Area

This area was once known as the Great Cedar Swamp until lumber, industrial, and agricultural endeavors transformed the landscape to what we see today. After all of the cedar trees had been harvested, Albert C. Burrage purchased sections of this area in the early 1900’s and built a large factory on a 40 acre site at what is now the corner of Pleasant and Hawkes Ave. This industrial complex consisted of 4 factory buildings, offices, workers homes as well as a small hotel. After a large fire in 1919, the factory was closed and next came large scale cranberry farming which continued till 2002 when the property (1600+ acres) was purchased by the Mass Division of Fisheries and Wildlife.
