North Leverett Sawmill

This is a well known landmark in North Leverett on the road to the Leverett Coop and further on, Shutesbury. The sawmill which I'm sure dates to the early 1800's had been falling apart but in recent years there was a big effort to repair it and I believe it may be operational again although I think it is electrically powered now.

Pics shot with a Lensbaby Composer but with a normal aperture this time so the blurs are kept to a minimum. I'll go back there and shoot this spot one evening when I have better light and use my best wide angle lenses and a tripod.

Peter, looks like you'll never run out of subjects to shoot! Keep it up, it adds to my day to see what comes up next! And how you chose to shoot! Thanks for the pictures!

Hehe, thank you! Believe me, this area is so rich with history and scenic stuff that it's just unbelievable.

Wait until you see some of the upcoming stuff I have planned. I already have taken a lot of shots at this one location but I'd like to get a few more before I post them... ;)

Wow, I'm jealous of all the available subject matter you have out there! Great shots! I need to visit the east coast sometime...the midwest seems barren comparatively. :p

Operational?! Are they still harvesting timber out there?

Peter Atwood said...

Yes sir, they are. I believe the largest private landowner in MA is Cowls Lumber and they have some insane number of acres...I want to say 50-100,000 acres, something like that. Anyway, this sawmill is not part of Cowls I don't think.
