City Directories and History: North of Lawson’s Pond was Oldfield Plantation, which served as the seat for the Kirk family during the second half of the eighteenth century. Old Field was divided into Mt. Pleasant and Loch Dhu, both of which were owned by the Kirks until the twentieth century. To the northeast of Old Field was Springfield Plantation. During the 1780’s and 1790’s Springfield was owned by Joseph Palmer. East of Springfield was Windsor Plantation which was the residence of Elias Couturier at the turn of the century. Poplar Hill Plantation, situated east of Windsor, was the residence of the Cahusac family.
