Watson Pond in Otis did not exist on the old maps, simply a brook until a dam was built…or was it the Huckleberry Trolley Line built up to cross the brook and swampy area. Forest skiing -Flash Hike in the Otis State Forest brought us out to this area. Angie thinks the snow is still too deep! Watson lived on the corner of Chandler and Lee Westfield Road in 1858. Iam told the dam was there then but in disrepair.
