John Bascom

John Bascom
(1827 - 1911)
Rest for the Weary

Bascom Lodge has welcomed hikers, skiers, and sunrise-seekers since its completion in 1938. Designed by Pittsfield architect Joseph McArthur Vance, the lodge was built by Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees with stone and lumber harvested from Greylock's slopes. Its name honors John Bascom, an early Greylock Reservation Commissioner who was a prominent advocate for constructing a fine summit house.
