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

It was cool to see, like a 2 min stop. Not something I would drive a long distance to go to, but since it was just off main st it was worth going to.

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.

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.

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.

This place is not in tour guides and most people miss it completely. Its free and interesting! Walk back towards Bassett Hospital and you will find an amazing and beautiful stone bridge.

A man made mound of dirt with a plaque, and the plaque was difficult to read. May be some bones in the mound. In a pretty park across from an interesting mansion. Would not go out of my way to get here, but it's close to Main Street, a little off the beaten path. Happened to be on our way... More
