  • It should be noted that the town of Prescott no longer exists in the state of Massachusetts. To make way for the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir, the state took the town by eminent domain. It was disincorporated as a town in 1938
  • The tower was staffed until 1913
  • Although much of the town is under the Quabbin Reservoir, the former site of this tower is still on dry land.
