Arthur B. Cohn is set to present “What Lies Beneath: Stories from Seneca Lake” at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site on Tuesday, September 24th at 6:30 pm.
The talk will focus on the first two seasons of the Seneca Lake survey and the significant shipwreck discoveries that will add to the understanding of the canal era when horses and mules walked the towpath. Cohn will also outline the history of the Seneca Lake region and, based on his four decades of Lake Champlain experience, the logical expectation that shipwrecks would be present.
Cohn is the Principle Investigator for the Spitfire (1776) Project, Seneca Lake Survey Project, and Director Emeritus of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
The program will take place inside the Enders House adjacent to the Visitor Center on Schoharie Street in Fort Hunter.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available.
