Dam the Poor River

On the way home from an appointment I took a rather long detour which brought me by the Hopkinton-Everett Dam.  It was built in the early 60s as part of a flood control measure.  In 1938 there was a powerful hurricane that caused immense damage and destruction.  The Piscataquog, like other rivers, overflowed its banks...
