Inscription.  
Nichols Pond Park, a Madison County park, consists of 45 acres of land. The park is open to the public year round from dawn to dusk, and provides opportunities for hiking, bird watching and other forms of outdoor recreation.
The pond located at the park is a forested wetland and is approximately 15 acres in size. The wetland provides habitat for a number of birds and mammals, as well as several different species of plants. The pond serves as the head waters for Clockville Creek, which supplies water to the waterfalls at Oxbow Falls in the Town of Lincoln.
Nichols Pond Park is the site of an early Oneida Indian village. Artifacts dating back to the 1400's have been discovered at the site. There is also substantial evidence that Nichols Pond was the site of a decisive battle where Samuel de Champlain aided by 10 Frenchmen and 300 Hurons attacked the stockaded Oneida Indian village October 10-16, 1615.
