Bullough's Pond, a former mill pond located in Newton, Massachusetts, is now a decorative pond in a suburban neighborhood, used for bird watching and walking. In the nineteenth century it was the site of a commercial ice business.[1] Since the early 2000's, temperatures have warmed to the point that its winter ice is no longer thick enough to support skating safely.[2]
