Waccabuc is a hamlet and lake in Lewisboro, Westchester County, New York. Waccabuc was first established as a vacation home of the Mead family and was named for its lake, Lake Waccabuc. The Mead family vacation house in Waccabuc has since become the privately owned Waccabuc Country Club which owns two large stretches of golf-fields and a lake-front.
For many years, Waccabuc held the record for smallest post office in the United States, until an expansion in 2003 cost it that distinction.
Waccabuc is set apart from the other hamlets of Lewisboro, as well as most other towns in Westchester, in that all property must be on a minimum of two acres of land and, on most streets, the property minimum increases to four acres of land. To further maintain the beauty of Waccabuc a 100 acre piece of land was bought by all residents of Waccabuc through the Waccabuc Land Owner's Association for conservation purposes as well as to provide hiking trails.
A 2005 New York Times story on the hamlet captured the social function of the Post Office and the locals' efforts to preserve and maintain it.
The Mead Memorial Chapel and The Homestead are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
