The Chippewa Bay Area
Historic New York
As the trials of the first years passed, fields of grain replaced the forest and gave way to prosperous farms. Gradually, the original log cabins were replaced by stone houses, many of which survive to this day. Superb workmanship, firmness of principle and industriousness were part of this Scottish tradition that is now part of our heritage.
Erected 1969 by New York State Education Department & Department of Transportation.
