Russell's Pond located on Indian Pond Road (and often mistaken as Indian Pond) was a man-made pond created by Thomas Russell. Russell, a tack-factory owner, permanently flooded Winter Meadow Brook (named as it flowed through a meadow once owned by Christopher Winter) by damming Winter Meadow Brook and turning the water through a ditch or canal and consequently flooding the meadow. The creation of this pond actually caused a lawsuit, in which Russell lost the suit.
