What happened to Jamesville Pond?
« on: November 20, 2013, 11:30:50 AM »
Hi All,

I was looking for any information regarding Jamesville Pond.  While browsing some old maps of my former neighborhood (Jamesville), I noticed there was once a "Jamesville Pond" located behind the old Wright Wire building across from Ty Cobb baseball field.  Kettle brook still runs through the dead pond.

I attempted to research this long gone pond and I cannot find any info on when it was drained.  It shows up in maps as late as 1939.  I lived in the area during the 70's-80's and I never heard anything about it.

Any info or pics of the actual pond would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

No info on your question, but you might be interested in the story of how a dam breech caused a rush/flood through that area. Search a bit, you will find a kinda interesting story.
