State Route 149, Colchester Connecticut 06415
Only stone foundations remain of a waterwheel that once powered a sawmill in the colonial times at Day Pond State Park in Colchester
. The 180-acre Day Pond State Park was named after the 'Day' family pioneers that were responsible for that original structure.
The pond is a favorite of anglers as it is stocked with trout. In addition, picnicking, swimming, and mountain biking are popular activities.
Location is 5 1/2 miles west of Colchester off Route 149. The Park is protected by the State Department of Environmental Protection, Eastern District Headquarters in nearby Marlborough.
