Bascom Lodge

Adams, MA 01220

85th anniversary in 2022
Nestled on the summit of the state’s highest mountain, the lodge is the centerpiece of a 12,500-acre wilderness park.
Mountain lodge built during the height of the great depression by volunteers from the civilian conservation corps. Named in honor of the reservation’s first commissioner, an ardent protonate for the construction of a lodge befitting the grandeur of the mountain, Bascom was designed in an architectural style that would later become an inspiration for many of America’s national park buildings. Constructed from local stone quarried from the mountain and old-growth red spruce timbers harvested from the slopes of the “Hopper,” The Lodge, as we see it today, opened its doors in 1937.
