CALAIS, Vt. (AP) - A proposal to transfer ownership of a Vermont landmark could settle a dispute about public access for swimmers to Mirror Lake, also known as Number 10 Pond, in Calais.

Swimmers have been locked in a dispute with private landowners, with threats of legal action on both sides. The Times Argus reports (https://bit.ly/2vFdBEU ) the parties have agreed to explore an option that would transfer disputed land rights to a new nonprofit that would both ensure the upkeep of a historic community hall and allow swimmers access to the lake.

The property owned by the Stow Women’s Relief Corps has a war memorial, beach frontage and a memorial hall that once hosted weddings and dances that has fallen into disrepair and closed.
