The calm, deep waters of Otsego Lake were for many years a meeting place for Natives traveling the Susquehanna and Mohawk Rivers. Join a museum educator for a 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.
Our reproduction Mohawk Bark House and original Seneca Log House will be open for interactive exploration and staffed with a Museum Teacher to answer your questions. Guided tours will begin each day at 2pm at the kiosk of Fenimore Art Museum and will last approximately 45 minutes. Entrance to this exhibition and guided tours are free with paid museum admission and for Fenimore Art Museum members.
