Fox Lair


Fox Lair was discovered by Susan Bamann in 1989 while she was looking for the previously located Johnson site. The location of the Johnson site was incorrect in the New York State Museum files. Bamann found little or nothing where the Johnson site was supposedly located. It's clear that Fox Lair and Johnson are the same site. The site is located in the state of New York on a ridge near Otsquago Creek, Fort Plain, and the Mohawk River.
