Cooper's Cave


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 and beloved novel, The Last of the Mohicans. As you look into the site that offered protection to the characters in the tale, you can imaging how it inspired Cooper to write this classic American novel of love and adventure.

Nestled under the Cooper's Cave bridge, which connects the Village of South Glens Falls and the City of Glens Falls, sits a viewing platform adjacent to the cave, with information on James Fenimore Cooper; and the Mohican Tribe.
