Project Description

In the conservation of Jamies Pond, everyone involved came out ahead. The former landowner, the Hallowell Water District, was able to get needed funds to develop a deep well-water source for its customers. By selling its land for less than the appraised value, the District helped make it affordable to those who sought to protect it. The Land for Maine’s Future Program contributed half the project cost, matched by contributions from the City of Hallowell and numerous local citizens. Now the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) manages a 550-acre area surrounding Jamies Pond where area residents and visitors can enjoy outdoor recreation year-round.

The 107-acre pond supports a healthy population of gamefish and other species, making it a popular destination for fishing. In summer and fall, people often walk on the uplands and canoe on the pond, returning in winter to cross-country ski and skate. An excellent trail system on the property enables hikers and skiers to enjoy views of the pond and stream, and to visit an historic dam site.

A property map of Jamies Pond is posted on the IF&W web site.
