Troubled Waters: Wendell’s doomed power plant, 1909-1938

JulJuly 23 2024

6:30pm - 8:00pm Wendell Free Library

7 Wendell Depot Road, Wendell, Massachusetts 01379

The Athol-Orange Power Plant was a major construction project in
1909-1910, supplying electricity to communities along the Millers River
for nearly 30 years.  But in 1938 extreme weather, which had a history
of reshaping local communities, would prove to be too much for this
technological behemoth.  Wendell Historical Society board members Pam
Richardson, Edward Hines and Joseph Coll will present the history of
this facility, whose destruction nearly destroyed the town.  Tuesday,
July 23, 2024, 6:30 PM, Wendell Free Library.
