Lower Pond Bulkeley Grist Mill

It appears I have been calling this place by the wrong name. Dividend pond is wrong, not even close.

It is actually the Bulkeley Grist Mill pond. The photos here being from the lower pond, there are two.

In 1667 there was a corn and grist mill here. The brook and falls had a small dam providing the mill with water from the upper pond. It’s a lake really, small but still a lake.

This year both ponds, and the falls, are about as colorful as I have ever seen them. Another day or so and the leaves will be coming down like snow. But for now it is a great show.

    1. Thanks Robin. This fall has been incredible and we have been out most days trying to capture as much as possible before it’s over.
