Known to the Indians as "Michanagrape," these waters were formed by the melting glacier some 10,000 years ago. In 1700 the lake was named Christian Pool when it was included in a land grant to Michael Hawden. Later called Great Pond, Big Pond and Crystal Pool, it became Franklin Lake in the late 19th century. The land around the lake was settled in the late 1700's by farmers of Dutch heritage. The area was long known as the Ponds Neighborhood.
