Cooperstown, New York —Visit Fenimore Art Museum this summer for a guided tour of its Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) interpretive area Otsego: A Meeting Place. The calm, deep waters of Otsego Lake were for many years a meeting place for Natives traveling the Susquehanna and Mohawk Rivers. Tour the Otsego Lake shoreline with a museum educator to learn about the early inhabitants of these waters. Explore the museum’s immersive, reproduction Mohawk Bark House and original Seneca Log House to gain insight into the changing Central New York landscape and an appreciation for the lasting legacy of the Haudenosaunee. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and are included with paid museum admission. Find more information at FenimoreArtMuseum.org.
