This photograph shows the completed Mt. Zircon Reservoir and Cabin before it was flooded for use. Once flooded it covered an area of 21 acres and held 110 million gallons.

During World War II, the reservoir was under constant surveillance against possible sabotage of drinking water sources. The patrolman who utilized the cabin was Asa West, who resided with his wife, Alda, at their farm near the confluence of the Mt. Zircon Brook and the Androscoggin River.
