. New links and listings are added so be sure to check back often.
Just south of the Mohawk River Valley, lies Schoharie County. Its quiet natural beauty is waiting to welcome you, just as it has welcomed visitors for thousands of years.
A prominent site in the county is the Old Stone Fort, used for defense against British and allied Indian attacks during the Revolution, and as an armory during the Civil War. In 1981 the Iroquois Indian Museum opened in a new building near Howe Caverns in the town of Cobleskill, New York. It has the largest collection of Iroquois art in the United States. The museum includes a performance center, where Iroquois present traditional and contemporary music and dance.
Much of the southern portion of the county lies within the Catskill Mountains. Land rises in both directions quite rapidly from Schoharie Creek in the middle of the county. In contrast, the northern part of the county is predominately small hills and valleys. More than 75% of the county's population lives in the north, closer to the Mohawk River, the historic transportation route east and west through the state. You can find good fishing here.
Vroman's Nose is a prominent geological feature in the town of Fulton (near Middleburgh). It is among the more popular hiking sites in upstate New York and is of significant historical note. Vroman's Nose not only encompasses the basic easy and difficult trails, but also notes of interest. These include the summit, which is a large, flat surface left by glacial movements. This is called the "Dance Floor." There is also a location near the summit that may have been used by Patriot snipers during the Revolution. Vroman's Nose is a portion of the Long Path.
