Celebrate history and create memories during this year’s Path Through History Weekend on June 18 and 19 at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site. The Path Through History program is an established state-wide series of events that consists of many organizations that participate in a focus on local history.
During the last almost two centuries, the Erie Canal has been the waterway used as the path for so many traveling through the wonderful Mohawk Valley and across New York State. Schoharie Crossing is the only location where all three of the major phases of the canal can be witnessed.
For 2016 the site will be holding a Schoharie Crossing Scavenger Hunt that will ask questions pertaining to all aspects of this great historic site. Questions range from historical facts, to plant and animal spotting as well as getting you to really seek out things you may otherwise miss on your visit. The challenge is worth it and a whole lot of fun too!
The site will be hosting Scavenger Hunt participants on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The passport can be turned into Visitor Center staff during operating hours or sent to the site by no later than July 1st. A winner will be selected at random and an announcement made.
