About your host

I am very passionate about the area and have been camping and hiking here for over 30 years. I have been studying chief Cornplanter for almost 10 years and have read everything there is to read about him. I have hiked the grant and surrounding areas and have plenty of knowledge of of the stories surrounding Cornplanter and his half brother, the prophet Handsome Lake.

Where you'll be

Many of the sights and stories have been lost to the 200 plus years since the grant was home to Cornplanter. I have painstakingly researched the area and have located many of the places and want nothing more than to share my research with others that are interested.
