Oak Orchard

A Wilderness Camp on the Inland Waterways

Wilderness path

Originally published in partnership with the Town of Verona Historical Association.

The information presented in this publication was developed from data compiled by The Durham Project - an archeological research project at the New York State Museum dedicated to documenting, preserving and interpreting physical remains associated with the era of the Western Inland Lock Navigation Company [1792 - 1820] - New York's first canal company.

The archeological site described in this pamphlet was discovered by the author in consultation with Dorothy Cmaylo, Verona Town Historian.
