I am so excited to have learned how to post a map. I tried once before and it was a bust. Thank you for this monthly challenge and the directions on how to achieve success.
This is the town I call home. As you can see there is still quite a bit of green, but it is fading fast as more people move into the area. Barre is almost right smack dab in the middle of Massachusetts approximately 60 miles west of Boston.
During the civil war Barre was responsible for supplying the Union Army it’s gunpowder and during the Industrial Revolution was known for producing “Palm Leaf Hats”. From what I read that was a pretty big thing for farming communities in this area.
