Historic and moving

We came to this spot to find a letterbox and found the area to be quite relaxing and serene. A bit of history, not just baseball.

This burial mound is located in a small field at the end of Main St. across from some historical homes on the lake. It was eerie and different and a quaint piece of history from the area.

This is really just a field with signs explaining what was done at the site. Only takes a minute to stop. Interesting.

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 of Fame. It's a quick walk from there and the area around it is fairly... More

Stop at one of the book stores in Cooperstown and buy a copy of the "Cooperstown WalkAbout". It will lead you right to the Indian Burial Mound. The not so cryptic inscription is worth the walk.

It's a mound... with a sign. Walking distance from the Hall of Fame, across the bridge and up the hill.

If you have kids who need to run, this is a big open space on the Susquehanna River. We did a letterbox which is what brought us to the spot. The Clark Bridge is in the park. Pretty spot.
