From Glaciers to Native American Habitation, Yates County has a rich geological and historical story. From the time of the glaciers and when they retreated until the revolutionary war, Native American cultures lived between and around the shores of Keuka, Seneca and Canandaigua Lakes.
From the nomadic archaic people that lived here after the ice age to the mound building cultures, and eventually the Seneca people, there is a mysterious story that lies hidden in the past. Some evidence of the story remains hidden in the hills and valleys that we call home.
The Jerusalem History Group is planning some summer events that will help explain the changes over the centuries.
