Cortlandt Manor & Mohegan Lake
Cortlandt Manor is the largest hamlet within the Town of Cortlandt. It's runs along the Northwestern border of Westchester-Putnam County, encircling the City of Peekskill and expands down until the New Croton Reservoir. Cortlandt Manor is mostly made up of residential homes surrounded by serene nature.
Cortlandt derived its name from the Van Cortlandt family who began purchasing land in 1677. Cortlandt was the site of many skirmishes during the Revolutionary War. Local roads, such as Watch Hill and Furnace Dock Road, where the furnaces that made ammunition for the war effort were located, bear names reflecting the Revolutionary time.
