Purgatory, Sutton, Mass., 1906

Legend says that the chasm was created by the devil in response to an Algonquin Indian woman killing a white colonial settler.

Historians say that the legend actually served a religious purpose in the colonists’ efforts to Christianize Native Americans.

Geologists believe that a mile-high glacier let loose a gush of dammed-up water some 14,000 years ago, leaving the walls intact but carving out the 70-foot-deep chasm.

The joists were charred extensively, but firemen said that they had not been weakened to any great degree. A smoldering fire within the partition caused firemen to remain on the job for 90 minutes, feeding water to the hidden blaze with a pressure spray nozzle. Damage was listed at $300 by firemen, although estimation of the damage within the partition is subject to revision. The fire was extinguished by the Greenwood and Apponaug Fire Companies...
