Page 100. " It’s better at Bigelow’s Mill "

Bigelow Carpet Mill, built in 1847, still stands today on the corner of Union Street and Main Street in Clinton, Massachusetts. Nearby is Wachusett Reservoir, which was then the largest body of water in the state. With its stock of fish including Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch, it is a popular fishing haunt.
