Brighton's Victorian SilhouettesAmelia and Benjamin Pipp lived near the Millpond. Their summer activities were swimming and fishing which was common for all kids. Placing worms on their hooks and awaiting the first hit of the "big" fish was their challenge. Their talents were observed by friends who laughed, joked and splashed by their side. Their ability or inability to hook and land the fish became the stories shared during future gatherings of buddies. Fishing was sometimes a requirement in families. There were times when family income dwindled due to economic misfortunes. During these difficult financial times, parents may have assigned the children jobs of fishing and returning for dinner with a bucketful of fresh fish. The Brighton Millpond has always been a valuable all-season community resource.
