From its formation when the glaciers receded to the treasured recreational space it offers today, Dudley Pond has a rich history. Educator and Cochituate resident, Sheila Carel, has explored the colorful history of the pond and its surroundings, including Dudley Woods. She will share this history, highlighting Dudley Pond’s rich and diverse history. Over time the Pond has served as a sacred place for Native Americans, a water source for the rapidly growing City of Boston in the 1840’s, the sumptuous Simpson Estate that became the Mansion Inn, Ted Williams’ and “the Babe’s” fishing base at the Dudley Chateau, water quality improvements, recent pontoon boat band concerts, and more.

Refreshments: Harvey Segal
