— Fort Stanwix National Monument —

For centuries water was the easiest way to move people, goods, and ideas. Hundreds of tons of trade goods passed over the Oneida Carrying Place — here raw materials sent east from the Great Lakes region passed manufactured goods heading west.

Canoes and flat-bottomed boats called bateaux were the primary watercraft in this region.
