Hobbs Pond, Hope Maine

 

 

Comments from a meeting of the Hope Historical Society in 2010: Hobbs Pond from side of Hatchet Mountain on Hatchet Mountain Road
1900-1920? Foreground is recently reverted pasture, growing up mainly to balsam fir (evidence of Christmas tree cultivation?) and juniper. Pine trees on pond shorewhere there were summer camps. Pond at pre-1950s level. No Taylor camp at public beach.Mt. Megunticook and Battie obscured by fog.Whose farm buildings prominent on Barnestown Road?
