Dana, Massachusetts is a former town located in Worchester County. It was incorporated in 1801 from parts of Petersham, Hardwick and Greenwich. During the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir in 1938, Dana was disincorporated and subsequently the area was flooded. Of the four towns disincorporated for the reservoir, Dana has the most landmass that is still above water.

Since Dana is no longer an inhabited town and now sits in a protected area, there is little to do here besides hiking and exploring. The trails around and through Dana abound, so there is much to explore. The most famous sight in Dana is the Dana Common; as implied by the name, this area is the only flat, open space you’ll find. It’s a great spot for a picnic or for the paranormal-inclined a ghost hunt! This area has a long history of supernatural activity.
