Burt's Pit, Peat Fever, Abolitionists and Avarice

A 15-acre wetland in Florence containing Northampton's only extant bog, Burtís Pit, is interesting for its geology and ecology. But its human history connects topics ranging from 19th-century agricultural trends and attitudes about slavery and abolition to the impact of out-of-control development in the 20th century.
