Ity's a burial Mound:)

Not much here, easy to get to, but limited parking, just off the end of main street. There is a plaque to tell about the mound and the surrounding park is a nice hike to the river.

We went here because it was on the map supplied by our hotel -- no one and nothing else that we encountered during two days in Cooperstown mentioned it. It's a very short walk out of the downtown area, past some imposing estates and historic homes. The site itself is not well marked if you are coming on foot from... More

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.
