Windham Life and Times – August 5, 2022

Armstrong Shore

They’re almost all gone…the summer cottages that once lined the shore of Cobbett’s Pond. This is a beautiful view of Armstrong shore with the newly constructed summer cottages overlooking the water. Rural Oasis Says, “A neat little cottage was built by Mrs. Pallester of Lawrence on land leased from George F. Armstrong. There are still a couple of the original cottages left, but most are gone, removed to make room for more commodious year round homes. I remember the red cottage that was once located on the knoll where Richard and Megan Armstrong’s home is located today. The farms of the Windham Range are shown in the background. This photograph and others of the pond are available to purchase on beautiful archival paper from the Penobscot Marine Museum who has the Eastern Illustrating (postcard) plates.
