I am not positive the pond has that name, just as with the pond at Moosehorn Road. But this is in the Sweet Alice Conservation Area so I am going with that. The pond was created by the damming of Plum Brook where it enters the property. It was owned by the Epstein family whom I met and they gave me permission about 25 years or so ago to wander the land. It is now owned and protected by The Kestrel Land Trust in partnership with the Town of Amherst and adds to the trails and land conservation of the Holyoke Mountain Range.
Back in the mid-80’s when we bought our house, I had to apply for a special permit to operate an antique restoration business out of our home. Alice Epstein was a town volunteer on the review board and while visiting my home told me of the pond and said I was welcome to visit it. She and Seymour have passed away and Kestrel has now protected their land which they loved. Their home is now host to various educational programs and offices.
