What's the Colloquial Name for This Stretch of Road?

In this week's edition of Then and Now, we show you a photo of a stretch of road in Hamilton and Wenham from the 1800s. Tell us in the comments section what the stretch of road is called and where it is located.

Here is the latest edition of the regular feature 

We'll start on Tuesday by showing you a picture from the past in either Hamilton or Wenham. Then you'll have a chance to guess where it was taken and can come back to get the answer on Thursday.

Plus, you will see a picture of it as it looks today.

In this week’s photo, where was this photo taken? When was the photo taken? What is the colloquial name for this area, which is still used today?

And the main building in this photo burned down. As a bonus, what year did it burn?

Please make all guesses in the comments section below.

Possibly the "Pond Hill" area going around Wenham Lake towards Beverly.
