We made a quick stop while leaving town because it is an interesting part of the history of the area. Not much to see but it is a beautiful setting!

Really isn't much to see, it's on the edge of town, but in a peaceful setting away from the hubbub of Main street.

As a history buff, this is a site I was interested to see. There are burial mounds in Ohio and had not seen one in NY State. A quick stop.

I'm living in Cooperstown for a year and I happened upon this while walking around town a few months ago. It's a very small stone sign on a mound in a fenced-off area (easy to get to) that's a block or two from the Hall...More
