"Landmarks & Pathways: Re-Discovering Colonial Transport Routes Across The Susquehanna/Mohawk Divide"
This is a PowerPoint slide program first presented at the Conference on New York State History in June of 1999.
This program describes the discovery of a previously undocumented colonial roadway that connected the Upper Susquehanna watershed, near Otsego Lake, with the Lower Mohawk watershed near Fort Plain. Various natural and cultural landmarks that existed in the 1750s, and can still be found today, are used to provide an archeological context for this nearly vanished historic transport corridor.
The presentation narrative is attached to each slide at the bottom of the page. You may have to scroll down to see it.
