Greenwood Lake by Jasper F. Cropsey

Dublin Core

Title

Greenwood Lake by Jasper F. Cropsey

Description

Greenwood Lake depicts a scene displaying a hazy sunset over the west shore of the lake and on right side is an island and on left side is a peninsula jutting out into the lake. The peninsula has trees in fall foliage and two human figures and a small moored sailboat.
Greenwood Lake is an interstate lake approximately seven miles long, straddling the border of New Jersey and New York. It is located in West Milford, New Jersey and Greenwood Lake, New York.
Greenwood Lake's connection to Ringwood, New Jersey is its history of being dammed up ca. 1765 by Peter Hasenclever of The American Company to increase the size of the lake for water power used downstream at the Long Pond Ironworks.
