Cooper’s Cave

A viewing platform with information panels invite visitors to view the cave and falls. Learn about James Fenimore Cooper and the Mohican Tribe’s legacy in this region.

James Fenimore Cooper captivated early American readers with thrilling stories about their historical past. In Last of the Mohicans, published in 1826, Cooper wove a saga of war in the wilderness that cast Lake George as “Horicon.” Supposedly inspired by a visit to Glens Falls, Cooper brought his drama to its climax in a cave under the waterfall. “Cooper’s Cave” as fascinated visitors ever since.
