At the end of the Revolutionary War, James Steven James settled the land around Long Pond, a 101.9-acre, spring-fed lake tucked away in Northwood, New Hampshire. Once a working farm, the land was later divided and became Long Pond Estates. In Memories of Long Pond, author Irene E. DuPont shares the history of the development and the growth of Long Pond.
DuPont's family purchased a cottage on the lake more than thirty-eight years ago; it was a place where they could enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, and just getting away from the city. In this memoir, she provides a plethora of details about this lake, including the stories of the James family, the DuPont family, and the other property owners who have made this area their home.
Memories of Long Pond gives insight into the Long Pond area, a growing community that provides much in the way of history of family lives-with building, feuding, and moving on toward the future.
