Under City Ownership: These two ponds are part of the Detroit Edison Company's Huron River properties that have come under city ownership. The recent purchase, at a cost to Ann Arbor of $280,000, was made to protect the city's main water supply and to provide for recreation and open space. Barton Pond is shown in the lower picture with the Barton Dam at the right. US-23 is at the top right.
