Founded in 1917, the Lake Waramaug Association is celebrating its Centennial this year with several exciting initiatives and community events.

Plant 100 Trees and Save 100 Acres Around the Lake.

Join with the community to plant a tree in honor of our Centennial, and help us to preserve enough land around the Lake to ensure a healthy and beautiful environment for generations to come.

Learn more about these programs and how you can participate, from our August 2016 Newsletter.

And for guidelines on selecting, planting, and caring for your Centennial Tree, check out our new Trees page.

Lake History Project

In connection with a Centennial project to write histories of families that have been on the Lake for 100 years or more, we are building an online archive of Lake history. We are asking all of our friends, residents, and members to kindly look in your attics, family albums, forgotten file and shoe boxes to see if you have any photos (or other interesting documents) you would be willing to share with our community.

Please contact us at with any contributions, which will be carefully scanned and returned to you promptly!

Waramaug was the name of an Indian chief of the Wyantenock tribe who had hunting grounds near falls on the Housatonic River, now referred to as "Lover's Leap," in the town of New Milford. Chief Waramaug and his followers wintered in the area now covered by Lake Lillinonah, which was later created by damming the Housatonic, and made Lake Waramaug their summer residence.
