Back of the Pond


Back of the Pond is a phrase that referred to Stephenville Pond before 1941, the year of the friendly arrival of the Americans, to the Stephenville area, during WWII. Previous to 1941, the area behind Stephenville Pond (not to be confused with Noel’s Pond) was inhabited by the founding families of Stephenville; a healthy mixture of French Acadian and Mi’kmaq cultures. For many who lived there, this pastoral fishing community was a little piece of paradise. After their land was expropriated to make room for the American base, liviers endearingly remembered, but would never see again, the life they were forced to leave behind. All that remains of this former landscape are the memories recaptured in this book.
