Historic Pond Drying Up

Remember last year when I posted about all the great historic, if abandoned buildings out in Pond, a small hamlet along Manchester Road in Wildwood?  Well, the historic Pond Hotel was demolished, and so was the Italianate farmhouse I documented.

    Wait – it was the Pond Hotel that was demolished, right? The Pond Inn is the building just west of it at the intersection of Old Manchester and Pond Rd.

    Alas, the lul in teardowns due to the recession has ended everywhere as new construction begins to crank back up for real. I fear that we are about to see an orgy of demolition like never before as pent up demand spurs greedy developers who have been sitting on their hands for the last few years.
