Waccabuc is a hamlet and lake in the town of Lewisboro, Westchester County, New York. Waccabuc was first established as a vacation home of the locally prominent Mead family and was named for its "Lake Waccabuc".

Waccabuc has a claim to fame. On July 1, 1956, Marilyn Monroe wed Arthur Miller in a Jewish ceremony at a private house in Waccabuc. Their nuptials were celebrated at the home of Miller's literary agent, Kay Brown. Some 30 friends and relatives attended the hastily arranged party.

The Mead Memorial Chapel and The Homestead are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
