Meadow Pond is located in the northern section of Islesboro. Before refrigeration, ice was harvested from Meadow Pond and shipped to southern ports. A dam was built across the end of the pond to raise the water level and increase its size. A sluice connected the pond to a west shore wharf, where vessels were loaded with the harvested ice blocks and set sail for Boston, New York and even as far as the Carribean.
