About

Jones Pond was settled by the Peter Jones family in 1829, who purchased it from Philip Church, the first white settler in Allegany County, who founded the Village of Angelica. Peter Jones built a farmhouse around 1840 in the popular Greek revival style, which stands at the front of Jones Pond Campground today. John A. Jones (born 1840), a veterinarian, purchased the property at some point and operated a farm on the property with his wife and three sons. He also became the Postmaster and Justice of the Peace for the Town of Allen. Therefore, the cellar of the farmhouse was used as the courtroom where neighborhood disputes were settled, and weddings were held in the living room. Mail was picked up at the farmhouse by the residents of the Town.
