Echo Lake or Puffer's Pond? It is still the same place in Dexter, Maine

Echo Lake or Puffer's Pond?

Apparently, the name of this small spring-fed pond was officially changed from the historical Puffer's Pond to Echo Lake in 1955 at the request of a few cottage owners of the time but without much community discussion about the matter even though it was named after some original settlers and their descendants still lived in the area. Although the name was changed legally, for many, Puffer's Pond still is its preferred name.
