The Pamet Trail System in Truro has some really great hikes. One is to the Bog House which is very interesting and full of history. The Bog House, located among former cranberry bogs in the Pamet Valley, was originally constructed around 1830. It supported cranberry harvesting that occurred there until the 1960s.
“The Pamet Cranberry Bog consists of three small freshwater bogs, a modified two-story “bog house,” sand pits, and a system of drains, culverts, and other hydrological features that all together were used to produce cranberries for commercial use during the late 19th to mid-20th century.”
The Bog House itself is quite unique with its main door on the 2nd floor. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
