Congers in Rockland County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Congers Lake Dam
This dam, constructed in 1995, replaced an original weakened stone and earthen dam built more than a century ago to create a recreational area for the St. Rita Parish of New York City. The Dutch called this stream, an easterly branch of the Hackensack River, the Kill von Beaste (Devils Brook). First called The New Lake, the impounded waters became Lake St. Rita and finally, in the 1920s, Congers Lake. For many years this point was known as Jones Landing.
