Geocache Description:

The Hawkins Pond property is approximately 71 acres that belongs to the Glocester Land Trust. After parking at the coordinates (PK16452) follow the abandoned driveway to the top of the dike to get a good view of the pond.

Beginning around 1750, the water provided by the pond powered a sawmill. In 1873 a cotton mill was erected on the property. Succeeding years saw the pond used to power a woodworking mill and, again, a sawmill. Around 1924, Walter A. Hawkins, a self-educated mechanic, fashioned a generator and electrical system, and generated electricity for the area until 1936.
I want to thank the Glocester Land Trust for their permission to place a cache on the property.
