The plains consist of sands and gravels deposited by glacial meltwaters; to the south finer particles of silts and clays form good agricultural soils. Steep slopes overlook the Marstons Mills River and Little River. These river valleys were cut by much more powerful forerunners of the present rivers, which are little more than streams today. Stripped of vegetation, these slopes erode easily and can become unstable. Ponds are formed in deep kettle holes, the most notable of which are Mystic, Middle, and Hamblins.Main StreetMain Street in Marstons Mills is mostly residential, with Liberty Hall and the Marstons Mills Public Library located on the road.Maratons Mills Community Church is located near the former Marstons Mills Elementary School and across from Liberty Hall.
