Inscription. Hanging Bog is a man-made pond built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's on then federally owned land. In 1962 Hanging Bog was transferred to New York State. The pond is referred to as Hanging Bog because of its unique mat of floating vegetation. The "Bog" is the hallmark feature of the 4571-acre Hanging Bog Wildlife Mgt. Area that surrounds it.

In memory of Gardner L. Whipple, Cuba, N.Y., who loved and visited the Bog for 50 years.
