Cherry-Valley is a beautiful little village located in Otsego County in central New York, and is a delight for anyone interested in Early American history. The town is full of old buildings and has a fascinating background; as well as picturesque views and a quiet natural beauty. It dates back to the year 1738, when seven Scotch-Irish families joined founder John Lindsay to begin farming the area. Although it's off the beaten path today, it was a gateway to the American Frontier in its day, due to its strategic location along the ridge of mountains that run east to west of town, and its nearness to the Mohawk River. Cherry Valley was an important link between the Mohawk and the other nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. This favored location along the ridge also made it part of the natural route east to west for settlers, as well. Many of the distinctive buildings in Cherry Valley date from the first half of the nineteenth century, and it's a nice town for self-guided walking tours. The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 greatly reduced the importance of Cherry Valley as a thoroughfare, and the building of the railroad diminished the route even further. Cherry Valley is near Belvedere Lake which offers camping and a 9-hole golf course, hiking and picnicking. The village also boasts several museums, fine dining, and many bed & breakfasts and historic inns. It makes a lovely, quiet get-a-way that is definitely well worth the trip.
