    Behind my house in Tewksbury Ma.

    Has anyone ever seen something of this size? The land that it is on is protected. You can see the size of it by comparing it to the apartment complex to the left. Railroad tracks run right beside it and its right behind my house.

    You can definitely MD it. According to a map of the 1870's its sits on what was known as The Great Swamp. I would imagine the EPA considers it wetlands.

    Re: Behind my house in Tewksbury Ma.

    just came from the sight. The outer walls and inner circles rise up about 3 feet from the ground. I walked the whole perimeter and dug in a couple of spots. seems to be a cement foundation underneath. between the site and the tracks is the foundation of a small red brick structure, probably had something to do with the railroad. its not as easy to get to as it looks. Its surrounded on all sides by swamp and thick reeds. you have to walk along the tracks, and in order to do that you have to cut through private property.

    MIKE, The SWAMP.

    I use to duck hunt when it was allowed out there also deer hunt there's more foundations out there in other places also..I often thought of going back to MD it. but never did....there are other structures closer to the high way between Trull rd and North st.before the high way was built there was a road that came from rt133 near dewing school and went into that area from the 495 side if you go up or down the high way you can almost make it out still. I grew up there went to that school explored those woods from top to bottom...some stange stuff... old still sites from proabition times...found some caches there!! got some jars w/ coins in them!! get out there check it out its a tough place lots of mud and water...its always changing cause of bever dams/rain ect..be carefull!!

    Looks like a baseball baseball diamond, but could be an old Nike missle site. They were everywhere on the east coast back in the 50's and 60's.

    Re: Behind my house in Tewksbury Ma.

    You know what those three (I see three sites) look like? An oil or fuel holding tank area... The earthen square boarders are there to hold a spill if one should happen. The round centers are the base of the tanks (now gone).

    In addition, in one picture, there looks to be a line to/from the area and heading out through the neighborhood... possible oil/fuel line now abandoned.

    The whole thing being along the tracks makes sense too - for delivery...

    Justa thought.

    Re: Behind my house in Tewksbury Ma.

    Thats a pretty far hike from the tracks for it to be with the railroad......I think those surrounding walls ..mounds ...are because its in the swamp and looks to be to keep the water out....
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow
