In 1868, Major General John A. Logan, the Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, named May 30th as a special day for honoring the soldiers that had died in the Civil War.  Like communities across the United States, the towns of the Swift River Valley commemorated their war dead each year on Memorial Day until the towns’ demise in 1938.  Since 1947, Quabbin Park Cemetery has been the center of Memorial Day services for the four towns of Greenwich, Prescott, Dana, and Enfield.  Please join the Friends of Quabbin, the Swift River Historical Society, the Veterans Council of Belchertown, Chauncey D. Walker Post #239, American Legion, and the staff of the DCR Quabbin Reservoir for our annual Memorial Day Service at Quabbin Park Cemetery.

Dogs are not allowed.
