There are a few theories behind the naming of Grenadier Pond, but the most intriguing revolves around an oft-told story of three Grenadiers who crossed the pond here to defend themselves against American forces in April 1813. They are said to have died crossing the thin ice on foot or by boat, and the pond was named in their honor.
