  1. It was a wonderful place to go skating when I was a child (1958-1962). I remember being with many local families and neighbors who brought their children to skate and be pulled on a sled on this secluded pond on the edge of a large farm. The farm is long gone and is now an industrial park although the pond is there still along a busy rail line but unfortunately, families no longer go there to skate in the winter. So the spirits have in effect reclaimed this once happy spot and one of my earlies fond memories from almost 60 years ago.
