Chemung County History



The area comprising Chemung County was located along the Forbidden Trail connecting all the major Native American villages from the Susquehanna River through the Chemung Valley and westward to Ohio. Guarded by the Senecas, the trail was forbidden to whites and enemy tribes. The first European to successfully navigate this path was a Moravian missionary who traveled through the area in 1767.
