South of the Finger Lakes, where four rivers converge, the Lands of the Painted Post have served people as both a thoroughfare and a gathering place for millennia. This region's location within a passageway through the hills, its navigable water routes, and its tremendous potential for mill sites and agriculture rendered Painted Post a favored site for human settlement. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Painted Post experienced unprecedented cultural, social, and economic change. That history is vividly illustrated in Painted Post.
