“Point of Rocks” Circa 1900

Point of Rocks or Horne Point

This photograph of “Point of Rocks” on Cobbett’s Pond was taken by William Austin Brooks about 1900.  One of the Brooks children is sitting on the point. The farms on the Range can be seen on the hillside in the background. The rock ledges actually extend out into the cove, and this was a favorite place for anchoring the boat and swimming, when my kids were young. Notice how low the water level of the like is at a time when the mills on Golden Brook were drawing water.
