Before the town of Blackwater Pond even existed, birds, insects, fish, and other animals lived there. Native Americans were the first people to live in the area and it was eventually occupied by white settlers as well. Farms and houses were built, and then a small town with a railroad station was developed. As time passed, many people called the town home but later, as people began to move to big cities, the town was nearly deserted. Now it's Blackwater Pond's bicentennial and many of the relatives of the people who founded the town return there for the celebration. Watercolor paintings illustrate this look at the history of a fictional New Hampshire town.
