a little trivia....: Before European settlers arrived the Brookfield area was home to the Lassawa and Nipmuc Indian Tribes, situated in the Quaboag Plantation (deeded in 1660). Quaboag is a Nipmuc Indian name meaning 'before the pond'. It can be assumed that one of the 'ponds' was indeed Furnace Pond, a pond man made by an Iron Works Company around 1850. Between 1880 and 1890 the pond was enlarged by the Stevens Textile Mill and renamed Lake Lashaway.
The shores of this beautiful lake grace both North Brookfield and East Brookfield. It's an excellent lake for all water sports including swimming, and touts fishing year round. Its waters are fed by the Five Mile River and trophy-size Northern Pike have been caught and recorded.
Lake Lashaway and the surrounding towns offer a deverse historical and cultural richness, yet the area still maintains a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere to please the most ardent nature-lover.
