Time capsule photos, Part III: latest explore dam, Nipmunk River Trail


BURRILLVILLE – Photographs of “favorite places” in Burrillville were submitted to NRI NOW this week for a contest that will see the five best printed for inclusion in a time capsule, to be buried in conjunction with the town’s Earth Day celebration.

The photo competition, put on by the Burrillville Earth Day Committee, gives readers a chance to send in a picture of their favorite place in town, with the hope to show those who dig up the time capsule in 50 years how the town looked in 2020.

Readers are invited to submit up to three photos by emailing sandy@nrinow.news or via the NRI NOW Facebook page.  Photos must include your name and the location where the picture was taken. They can also include a sentence or two on why you love the place and/or, how you think it might look in 50 years.

We’ll continue to publish pictures that come in, and readers will have the chance to choose the winners following the deadline on Friday, March 20.

Below is the third set of submissions. Additional photos can be found here and here.

“This was taken at behind the Assembly, overlooking the pond this past fall. I grew up on Main Street, and my brother and I were constantly playing at the park across the way and visiting the library (at its old location, on the corner). I retake this picture almost every year, but this is the best one yet.”   Colleen (Cote) LeComte

“Photo taken at the waterfall at Round Top Management Area. This is a very quiet pond and in the off season – you hear the water and nothing else. Its a wonderful spot.” Tina Haddad

“These were taken of Isabella and Jackson Gervais in June off the Nipmuc River Trail. Burrillville has so many hidden treasures! This place is so special because it is hard to access and is so pristine. What might this look like in 2070? I sure hope it will be just as beautiful for Bells & Jakz to share with their grandchildren.” Pauline Hopkins
