Hoosac Range

(ho͞o`sək), southern continuation of the Green Mts., NW Mass. and SW Vt., running from north to south. Its maximum height is c.3,000 ft (910 m). The Hoosac railroad tunnel, c.5 mi (8 km) long, built from 1852 to 1873, at the cost of nearly 200 lives, cuts beneath the range from east to west.

Such a canal, if built, would rise from sea level in Boston to 1,150 feet above sea level in Ashburnham, and would require some kind of "aqueduct bridge" across the Connecticut River and a four-mile tunnel 20 feet wide through the Hoosac mountains. It would have required 220 locks and prodigious amounts of water.
