Ice pond dam

Behind the Stone Double house on Owl Peak Brook, or Hewitt Brook as it is also known, a dam was built to create an ice pond. Ice was harvested here during the Winter and stored in the ice house for use over the hot Summer.

This may also have been the site of one of the water powered sawmills that was operated in the village. There was a sawmill at the ironworks during all the periods of occupation, possibly as many as three different ones over 170 years.
