Description: For anyone who’s read The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, this is a must-visit. In 1825 after returning from exploring the Adirondacks and inspired by “these dark and silent caves” in the heart of the Hudson River, James Fenimore Cooper took pen in hand to write his most famous novel. A viewing platform sits atop this historic Cave offering you a chance to imagine how it must have sparked Cooper’s imagination. Interpretive information depicts the history of the cave, as well as information on James Fenimore Cooper and the indigenous American Indians of the region.
