Off the Beaten Path: Skinnerville, MA

Connecting Point’s “Off The Beaten Path” continues with a look at Skinnerville, MA, a typical mill village of the mid-nineteenth century that was located along the banks of the Mill River near Williamsburg, Haydenville and Leeds.

In 1874, a catastrophic event would wipe Skinnerville off the map and today nothing more than a plaque on a rock and a few property markers are left. Producer Dave Fraser talks with Williamsburg Historian Ralmond Jon Black to learn more about this intriguing village located “Off the Beaten Path.”
