The History of the Fern Tor Pond

Poughkeepsie, New York 12601, United States

Created By: Marist College


There is a human-made pond, dating back to the old demolished manor of the Newbold family, which has become one of the centerpieces of the preserve. This lake is one most peaceful places on the Marist campus, and many students have made their way to this lake to destress and clear their heads. The trees that are growing it the tubes along the banks are the Black walnut trees that are used to repress the knotweed population.
