Bunker 309 (Sudbury, MA)

a weather worn cement bunker door with rusted locking bars firmly shut

The door to “Bunker 309” in the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, formerly the Fort Devens Sudbury Training Annex, stands resolutely closed. Sudbury, Massachusetts.

When you go to a new place and find something totally unexpected, it can really jar you but also spark the imagination. That’s what happened to me, at the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, when I wandered into the path of the ruins(?) of these military bunkers. I had gleaned from the signage that the area was formerly a military base, but I didn’t quite expect these imposing, mysterious structures to rise up beside the trails.
