State Line Pond is an approximately 75 acre lake in Stafford Springs, Connecticut on the Massachusetts border at Monson, MA. The lake was formed when a stream running through a meadow was intentionally flooded approximately 150 years ago. For many years, the Stafford Ice House "harvested" ice by horse from the lake during the winter and delivered it to restaurants, homes and businesses as far away as Boston. It is a beautiful and serene spot surrounded by the Norcross Wildlife Preserve. More recently, the lake has become shallower and has seen an increase in milfoil, pond lilies and other vegetation. Approximately 50 households on and near the lake are eligible for membership in the Whispering Pines Lake Association, a voluntary association of individuals who love the lake and want to preserve its beauty and recreational opportunities for generations to come. Please join us in our efforts to maintain and improve the lake for all to enjoy.
