"The first road in Pittsfield was 'chopped' through native forests from Park Square to the present House of Mercy Hospital and thence through Waconah Street over the old highway to Hancock. The first town meeting was held in 1761 at Deacon Stephen Crofoot's on Elm Street: the selectmen elected were David Bush, William Williams, Josiah Wright; constable, Jacob Ensign; wardens, Solomon Deming and David Noble; fence-viewers, William Francis, Nath'I Fairfield; deer-reeves, John Remington and Reuben Gunn." [from History of Pittsfield, Pittsfield website: www.pittsfieldweb.com]

The deer reeves were elected annually to enforce the law which forbade the killing of deer in certain seasons. (Between Jan 1 and Aug 1)
