“Pond Village, North Truro” with Ellen English

10:00 a.m. Sunday, October 16, 2022

Through stories and pictures, Ellen English will take us deep into the little known history of
Pond Village, the neighborhood around Pilgrim Pond in North Truro. In the 1900s, vibrant
industries thrived in Pond Village including candle making, weir fishing, fish freezing and
canning. Ellen, a member of the Truro Historical Society’s  board, will share her research, drawing on many sources including the Society’s rich collection of documents and artifacts.

All are welcome. Live at Chapel in the Pines and on Zoom.

Growing up, Ellen English spent part of her summers on Pond Road from toddlerhood on, after
her parents purchased a house there in 1958. She is delighted to now live in North Truro year-round with her husband, Will. Together, they run a small software company out of their home.
They have two grown daughters living off-Cape: one in Newton, MA and one in New York City.
