Yesterday’s View from Water’s Farm

As the leaves drop, Manchaug Pond is not only visible from the neighboring roadsides and Waters Farm but also from Douglas Road in Sutton (from Whittier’s Farm head south, look left as you start down the hill to Northwest Main St, Douglas.)

A close-up of the view from Waters Road, Sutton shows the old causeway which stretches across the channel. I am told by a neighbor that their home was moved many, many years ago from the Douglas side to the Sutton side along this road. A look at the 1831 map of Sutton shows that road.
