This early postcard says "View of Lake at Stevenson, Conn." The naming of the lake formed by the Stevenson Dam was a subject of controversy.  With a variety of suggested names, the State Legislature declined to get involved in naming the lake.  See Hartford Courant news articles of Feb, 8, 1923, May 25, 1923, April 8, 1924, and April 21, 1924.
