Parkitecture – Building into the Landscape

Parkitecture – Building into the Landscape Free for all ages. Discover the planned “Parkitecture” of historic Bascom Lodge. This rustic structure, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, was designed to fit into the landscape on the highest point in Massachusetts.

Today, the lodge is a demonstration of preservation success through DCR’s Historic Curatorship Program, enabling future generations to enjoy mountain-top amenities.

Estimated tour duration 30 minutes. Meet at the bronze relief map on the summit.

Tour route is wheelchair accessible. Parking fee may apply.
