Located in the Hudson Valley, in Ossining, New York, Teatown Lake Reservation has approximately 834 acres dedicated to the preservation of nature and a renowned education center. In 1176, British taxation made tea scarce. With a large chest comprised of tea, John Arthur moved to the Westchester area with the hopes of making a large profit off his tea. The Daughters of Eve discovered Arthur’s plan, and decided to siege his farmhouse until he agreed to fairly sell his tea. This is where the name, Teatown originated.
