These foundations mark the site of a two-story frame building erected by the Reverend Samuel W. Pond in 1847. It served as a Presbyterian mission to the Shakopee Sioux, and as Pond's home until his death in 1891.

An eight-foot stockade enclosed the house and a half-acre garden.

The building was wrecked about 1907.

Location DescriptionThis historical marker was once part of an extensive Minn. Highway Dept/NYA project that occupied land on both sides of Highway 101, connected by a stone veneer culvert that went under the highway. The site, known as Mill Pond Roadside Parking Area or Shakopee Roadside Parking Area, was designed by the Highway Department's premiere designer, Arthur R. Nichols. The RPA was landscaped in 1941, but the Pond Mission marker wasn't placed until 1954. All that is left of the RPA is the Pond Mission marker and the mill pond itself.
