Athol babingtonite locality, Athol, Worcester Co., Massachusetts, USA

Babingtonite was first reported from one of the "railroad excavations" in Athol by Charles U. Shepard in 1849. James D. Dana later questioned the identification of the mineral as babingtonite, but Palache and Fraprie (1902) confirmed that Shepard's ID was correct; they also cite Professor B. K. Emerson as saying the locality was no longer accessible.
