Used for water, fish, power
and skating lay south and west
of this spot. April 19, 1775
British troops dumped captured
cannon shot, musket balls and
barrels of flour into the pond.
The militia later recovered most
of the ammunition and a good part
of the flour from the centers
of the barrels.

Small shops built on the dam;
which is now the street, extended
to the south over the water.
The pond was drained and the
mill brook set in its present
course in 1836.
