— Putnam Memorial State Park —

The stone dam which makes this pond was installed at the time of the park's creation. But the stream was in existence during the 1778-79 army encampment. It is one of two main streams, one at either end of the camp, which provided water for the troops.
McDougall had been commander of Putnam's Division prior to going into winter quarters. Gen. Washington placed the division under Putnam and kept McDougall in command of the Hudson Highlands.
