• Bloody Pond

    During the Battle of Lake George on September 8, 1755 a party of Indians and French Canadians were surprised here by Captain McGinnis and a scouting party from Fort Lyman. Legend has it that so many were killed that the waters were stained red and thus the name of Rocky Brook was changed to Bloody Pond.

    Bloody Pond is located on Route 9, just south of Lake George Village (Map F-4). Look for the NY State Historical Marker.
