Further down Manchester Road to the west, Pond actually has houses that are much older than its neighbor Grover.
Updated: Thanks to Lynn Josse, I have learned more about the long, dilapidated building pictured above and below; it was the Pond Hotel, and you can read about its plight here. Unfortunately, the Pond Hotel has been torn down, as of July 22, 2013.
In particular, this double house right at the corner is a great example. It’s a cool house, in bad shape, and is currently sitting vacant. What is the story behind this house?
There also is a gas station from what looks like the 1920’s, which is now some sort of business.
The old house on the corner was a French restaurant a few years ago, but now it sits empty. It’s an interesting house, but like the rest of Pond, is made of wood and lack of maintenance is taking its toll.
The general store, now closed, is actually built in front of an older house, perhaps as an expansion of the original, smaller house.
