An Interesting Point of History

Easily accessed from the center of town. There is an historical sign explaining the area. Stop and look around as you drive to other attractions.

I like learning some history of the areas we visit. This was very insightful. Not much more other than the plaque placed at the Burial Mound, but it did make me think.

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

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.
