1. Seneca Crossing Marker
Inscription. Native Americans, French explorers, and Revolutionary War soldiers all used this 8-mile cross-country portage to access the upper reaches of the Allegheny River from Conewango Creek. This historic trail provided travelers with a preferable alternative to the arduous 26-mile upriver trip to the heart of the Seneca Nation. Several lower branches of Seneca Crossing converged near here, the trail's mid-point. The route continued to Kinzua.
 
Erected 2007 by Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
