This spring-fed stock pond provided an important water source prior to modern plumbing. The first water line to the manor house was not installed until 1960. This pond probably determined the location of the manor.
In 2008, the levees were repaired and the pond was restored to its original water level. It supports a variety of pond life, including fish, turtles, dragonflies, and frogs. The National Wildlife Federation recognizes Davies Manor Plantation as a Backyard Habitat.
