Mount Morris Dam
The US Army Corps of Engineers built the Mount Morris Dam in the late 1940s to prevent flooding on the lower Genesee River. Today, the dam continues to provide flood protection along 67 miles of the Genesee River Valley from the village of Mount Morris to downtown Rochester where the river enters Lake Ontario.
Free ranger-led tours inside the dam are available daily, April through October, on a first come-first served basis. Arrive early to sign up for a tour slot.
A Rich History
The park is rich with history. Within its borders stand a restored Seneca Indian Council House, the grave of Mary Jemison, "The White Woman of the Genesee," and a Native American history museum. The museum displays exhibits on the evolution of the park, the lift of William Pryor Letchworth, and sits adjacent to his home, now the Glen Iris Inn.
