Decoration Day Observance
6:00 pm
Old Stone Fort Museum Complex, 145 Fort Road, Schoharie, NY
Prior to Memorial Day, every May 30, the graves of Civil War soldiers were decorated with fresh flowers. The Old Stone Fort Museum will continue that tradition on Wednesday, May 30 at 6 p.m., in collaboration with local chapters of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the American Legion. The first Decoration Day observance in Schoharie County occurred in Cobleskill in 1877, by the Civil War veterans organization the Grand Army of the Republic or GAR. That organization was later succeeded by the Sons of Union Veterans.

Since 2009, the Corporal James Tanner Chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans have been re-creating this ceremony at the Old Stone Fort's Civil War monument and in the nearby cemetery where some 34 Civil War grave- stones are located. The Schoharie County American Legion and Legion Riders will participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at all the war memorials in front of the Revolutionary War stone fort, and the Sons will re- enact a GAR monument rededication ceremony. Then a procession of reenactors, veterans and the public will proceed through the cemetery laying fresh flowers on each of the Civil War graves. The activities will conclude with a bugler playing "Taps" at twilight.

The event is free and participation by the public is encouraged. The Old Stone Fort Museum will also be open extended hours.

Donations of fresh flowers are requested and can be brought to the museum any time Memorial Day or the day of the event. The Old Stone Fort Museum Complex is located in the village of Schoharie at 145 Fort Road, off NY State Rte. 30, 2.5 miles south of Interstate 88 Exit 23. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from Noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Iroquois storytelling with Falen Johnson
2:00 pm

An actor, playwright and crafter of contemporary tales for adults, Falen is Mohawk and Tuscarora originally from Six Nations. In contrast to traditional Haudenosaunee stories, Falen's thought-provoking expressions are woven from her experiences living in Six Nations and Toronto.

Sometimes comedic, some- times difficult, her stories take stock of what it truly means to be Indigenous, in both historical and today's context. Her work explores subjects ranging from dating outside color lines, land disposition, blood quantum, to stereotypes. A graduate of George Brown Theatre School, her credits include: Salt Baby, The Only Good Indian with Turtle Gals Performance Ensemble, The Triple Truth, Savage, Strong Medicine, Death of a Chief, A Very Polite Genocide, and Tombs of the Vanishing Indian. Falen has also been featured on The Moth Radio Hour.

HERKIMER

HERKIMER ATTRACTIONS

There are literally hundreds of attractions in the Mohawk Valley, covering a wide variety of aspects in the area's historic role in the settling of the country.

General Herkimer State Historic Site
The General Herkimer State Historic Site near Little Falls on Route 5S pays homage to Herkimer County's namesake and Revolutionary War hero, General Nicholas Herkimer. His home is open to visitors in the spring through the autumn and the site stages a number of Revolutionary War era- based special events through- out the season.

The Erie Canal
The Erie Canal, the State's oldest man-made trade route, winds through the Valley and offers numerous locks worth visiting. Lock 17 in Little Falls is considered to be one of the highest lift locks in the world. Its scenic surroundings add to the beauty of any stops along the canal.

Historical Sites
Herkimer County and the Mohawk Valley are steeped in history echoing back to the early French, English and Palatine German settlers.

Take a trip through our historic past by visiting the following:
◾ General Herkimer State Historic Site
◾ Indian Castle Church
◾ Fort Herkimer Church
◾ Historic Four Corners in Herkimer
◾ Fairfield Academy site
◾ Salisbury Covered Bridge
◾ Remington Gun Museum in Ilion
◾ Balloon Farm in Frankfort
◾ Fort Stanwix in Rome
◾ Oriskany Battlefield
◾ Fort Klock
◾ Johnston Hall in Johnstown
◾ Town of Webb Historical Building in Old Forge
◾ Erie Canal

Many towns and valleys have historical societies and buildings including the Herkimer County Historical Society in Herkimer that preserve the past so it will not be forgotten.

Hiking
Part of the lure of Herkimer County is the ability to get out in the woods and back to nature. Miles and miles of trails crisscross the county and offer the hiker a wide variety of terrain and scenery to satisfy even the most discerning enthusiast. Just to name of few of our beautiful trails:
Nature Trail Along the Otsquago Creek, Van Hornesville, located on Route
80. There are waterfalls, above-ground caves to explore, a wooded trail to follow, picnic tables, grills, historical remnants, wildlife and spring flowers.

Moss Island, Little Falls is located adjacent to Lock 17 on the Erie Canal System. Stop and see the lock on your way; this is the highest lift lock on the Erie Canal System. Moss Island has glacier-formed potholes that are 10+ feet deep on the edge of the island. There is a great wooded walking trail to get there from the lock.

Herkimer County Community College Nature Center Interpretive Trail is located behind the College. Discover that a forest is more than an area covered by trees. It is a community populated with an enormous variety of plants and animals - all interacting, interrelated, and interdependent.


GOODSELL MUSEUM AND TOWN OF WEBB HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION
Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Old Forge in Herkimer County
On the state and national registers of historic places, this museum in Old Forge features Adirondack-related exhibits and an extensive research library.

The Goodsell Museum features six rooms of continually changing exhibits, artifacts, photographs and memorabilia of early life in the Adirondacks. In addition to the museum on Main Street, there is a research library with books, maps, genealogy and business records, vintage photo- graphs and postcards. Open Tuesday-Saturday, no admission charge.

HERKIMER DIAMOND MINES
A natural phenomenon, Herkimer Diamonds are beautiful double-terminated quartz crystals which are found mainly in Herkimer County, New York. Incredibly, these phenomenal gemstones are believed to be close to five hundred million years old. The crystals are magnificent works of nature found in the rock, appearing to have been precision cut by man and having a diamond-like geometrical shape; thus, the name "Herkimer Diamonds."

Many collectors believe the Herkimer Diamond should rival a true diamond. Their reasoning for this is a true diamond found in the "rough" is exactly that, a rough appearing glass-like stone. The diamond must be

painstakingly cut by man to give it smooth faces and a geometrical shape.

In fact, Herkimer Diamonds are not diamonds. A true diamond is one of the hardest elements known to man, scoring a ten on a one-to-ten hardness scale. Herkimer Diamonds are harder than all quartz crystals. They fall at about 7.5 on the Mohs hard- ness scale, giving the real diamond a close race. For comparative purposes, many man-made steels barely score a seven on the hardness scale.

The majority of the Herkimer Diamonds have eighteen faces. Six triangular faces form the termination points on each end of the crystal. These are separated by a group of six square or rectangular faces. This conglomeration often results in a diamond shape. Variance in the plane of a face surface on a Herkimer Diamond has been measured at less than two thousandths of an inch. Even with today's technology, man has a tough time duplicating the precision nature has per- formed on the Herkimer Diamond.

Today, as many as five hundred people a day from all around the world visit the Herkimer Diamond Mines to prospect. It is not surprising to visit with prospectors from Sweden, Australia, France, California, Canada, Korea, Japan, Germany, Texas and Long Island!
