Calf Pasture Pumping Station


Constructed in 1883 this Romanesque style pumping station is one of the more ornate public works buildings I have come across. The station pumped raw sewage out of Boston neighborhoods and into storage tanks on Moon island, where it was released into the ocean. The pumping station was in operation until the opening of the Deer Island sewage treatment plant in 1968.
