Ridgebury, New York facts for kids
For a time, Ridgebury was also home to Moses D. Stivers (December 30, 1828 - February 2, 1895), a former U.S. Representative from New York, who moved in 1845 and completed his education there.
In the spring of 2008, the area's natural bodies of water, including Catlin Creek and Ridgebury Lake, were infested with groups of Northern snakehead, a highly predatory fish that has recently been found unintentionally spreading around the United States. In Ridgebury, the snakeheads have been removed with poisoning by the DEC, and all water has been restocked with native species.
