This month we are introducing our Mill River History, beginning with the river’s re-emergence from under glaciers after the last Ice Age.

Introduction and Geological History

We will introduce you to the Mill River and its major features as it brings life to the valley.  You will then discover its recent geological history since the disappearance of the last glaciers and the post-glacial landscape of Lake Hitchcock.  Much of the credit for this account goes to Dr. John Brady, Professor of Geology at Smith College, although the author of the account remains responsible for its writing.
