Moeckel’s Park


I found this advertising card for “Moeckel’s Park” at the estate sale at the Linton property.  According to the Moeckel Pond Village District web-site, the pond and dam were purchased by William and Gertrude Moeckel in 1921.  They rented boats and cottages along the shore of the pond and according to the card had a tea room and meals for the day trippers who came to enjoy this tranquil spot. The pond is now owned by the Windham Conservation Commission. Fund-raising continues by the Friends of Moeckel Pond to rebuild the dam so water levels can be restored in the pond.  More information can be found at
