— Fort Stanwix National Monument —

For centuries American Indians, traders, soldiers, and travelers crossed over this very path. Here goods and ideas were exchanged.

The name of this portage trail between two river systems is the "Oneida Carrying Place." It served as a major east-west route linking the Atlantic to the Great Lakes when waterways were the lifeblood of trade.

Trace the path back in time.

Depending on the season, boats and goods were carried over land as much as six miles between the two rivers
