Otsego: A Meeting Place – Guided Tours
Join Jessica Farmer, Cultural Interpreter of the Oneida Nation, for a guided tour of Fenimore Art Museum’s Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) interpretive area Otsego: A Meeting Place. Tours start at 2:00pm at the admissions kiosk of Fenimore Art Museum (October 19, 20, 21, and 28). The tour will last approximately 45 minutes and is included with paid museum admission.
The calm, deep waters of Otsego Lake were for many years a meeting place for Natives traveling the Susquehanna and Mohawk Rivers. Join our tour of the Otsego Lake shoreline to learn about the early inhabitants of these waters, the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). Explore our immersive, reproduction Mohawk Bark House and our original Seneca Log House to gain insight into the changing Central New York landscape and an appreciation for the lasting legacy of the Haudenosaunee.
