Historic Meeting House Pond - 04/03/10

This is a really nice church green in downtown Medfield, MA.  There is a really nice mill pond commonly referred to as Baker's pond, which according to the Cache description page is " in recognition of the late J.H. Baker who ran a world renowned wagon and carriage manufacturing operation at this site."

 The church nearby make this park even more like the old church greens from the days of horse and buggy, and simpler times.
Also due to the recent floods the little spillway flowing from the pond is like a raging river.
After taking in the sites I was able to find the cache extremely fast, it is superbly hidden and unless you were looking for it you would never know it was there.  Even though it is in a very open, high traffic area I don't see this one disappearing for a while.  
The house across the street just adds to the feeling of old time New England, glad to see the town is restoring it.  From the Cache description page: "Since the purchase of The Dwight-Derby House by the town of Medfield in 1996, it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the top ten oldest homes in America. Built in 1651, the house is a national treasure."
