Old Stone Church in West Boylston, Massachusetts during winter.

Old Stone Church

The construction of The Old Stone Church commenced in the early 1890s. It served as a replacement for the Baptist church lost in a devastating fire. Surprisingly, within a decade, the church faced abandonment due to the construction of a reservoir. However, owing to its captivating stone structure and potential as a scenic attraction, the local community successfully persuaded the commonwealth to spare it.

Today, it stands proudly on a peninsula beside the water, serving as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made for the reservoir. The church is now open to the public and can be used at no cost during daylight hours.
