Kensico Dam history trail opens at Cranberry Lake Preserve in White Plains

A new trail with insight into the history of the Kensico Dam opened Friday at Cranberry Lake Preserve in White Plains. County Executive Andy Spano helped formally open the trail that leads to a quarry, which produced stone for the dam. The historic trail connects some of the remaining traces of the stone cutting operation from the early part of the 20th Century. Joining Spano at the dedication ceremony was Salvatore Rubino. His grandfather was an Italian immigrant who became a stone carver on the Kensico Dam project. The trail is about two miles long, but anyone who takes it will travel through a major part of Westchester's history.
