“ghost town quarry”

The Becket Land Trust is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization which owns and operates the Historic Quarry andForest. It was founded by a group of citizens concerned about protecting the Town of Becket's rural character, natural resources and ecologically sensitive areas.  The Historic Quarry and Forest was the result of an extraordinary community fund-raising campaign to save a 300+ acre parcel of primarily wooded land from industrial development. To prevent detrimental impact on the site and the community, local citizens donated money to enable the Becket Land Trust to purchase the property and open the site to the public for recreational enjoyment. We are involved with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife in setting up a New England Cottontail habitat management area on the forest site - Read all about it. Thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers, all trails have been cleared and reblazed. We invite you to visit the quarry and hike the trails.
