Mt. Morris Dam
The Mount Morris Dam is the largest dam of its type in the eastern United States.
|The Mount Morris Dam is the largest dam of its type in the eastern United States. It is huge! The dam measures over 1000 feet across and almost 250 feet high. The Mount Morris Dam was built in the early 1950′s to protect the lower portion of Rochester and rural areas south of the city from flooding. And so far the dam has succeeded it’s purpose by standing triumphant against the mighty waters of the Genesee River. Come on over and explore this fascinating sight!
The Visitor Center at Mount Morris Dam is open daily April 1st – October 28th from 9am – 5pm. Free ranger-guided walking tours of the dam are offered each day as follows: Monday – Thursday at 2pm and Friday – Sunday at 11am & 2pm.
