How would you feel if you were told you would have to move from your home?  Now, many of us have experienced moving to a new home but what if you had no choice?  What if the government came and said everyone in your whole town had to move?  No one can stay.  The town is being destroyed.  That's what happened in the 1930's in Massachusetts.  The residents of three towns were told they would have to leave because a dam was being built that would flood the valley.  The town fought against it as best they could, but in the end, the towns were lost forever.  This is a story of the last days of Enfield, Massachusetts.
