Lake Mohegan History

Lake Mohegan, popularly known as Mohegan Lake, is located in the Town of Yorktown. The first European settlers to arrive in this territory were Dutch. Between 1626 and 1700, the area saw a surge in Dutch population. During the late 19th and the early 20th centuries, the area was a well-known resort community. The Mohegan Colony was established in 1930. However, by the 1970s, the lake had become mostly unusable for swimming purposes due to eutrophication.
