Sherman Pond, located in Brimfield, MA., is a naturally occurring water-body with no outlet control. The surface area is approximately 86 acres (Mass DFW). Originally known as Great Pond, according to Brimfield (1981), it was renamed in honor of John Brimfield, an original proprietor of the town. According to Beck (1903b), when the water level was low, clay pits were dug in the southern end of the pond. The clay was used to make pottery. A low gradient free-flowing stream discharges from Sherman Pond's southern end, Beavers have burrowed into the sand and gravel of the left stream bank.
