Otsego: A Meeting Place – Guided Tours

The calm, deep waters of Otsego Lake were for many years a meeting place for Natives traveling the Susquehanna and Mohawk Rivers. Join Michelle Bosma (Fenimore Art Museum) and Jessica Farmer (Oneida Nation) for a tour of the Otsego Lake shoreline to learn about the early inhabitants of these waters. 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 legacy of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois).
