Oneonta is a small town in Otsego County, New York. Guests in budget hotels in Oneonta learn that they are in the middle of “Leatherstocking Country”. “Leatherstocking” was the name given to 18th century frontiersmen such as the heroes of James Fenimore Cooper’s novels. Downtown Oneonta gives you the feeling of an earlier era, with its red brick sidewalks, early 20th century street lamps, and the genuine friendliness of the people. The stores operating in century-old buildings have the ambiance of A Norman Rockwell painting.
The Oneonta Farmer’s Market is a great place to buy fruit, vegetables, meat, baked goods, cheese, fresh flowers, herbs, and pottery. The market often provides entertainment. If you are booked into a discount hotel in Oneonta in the summer, you might have an opportunity to attend a concert in the town’s Summer Music Series. Open air performances are held in Neahwa Park. While you’re in the park, see the Little Red Caboose, which is a monument to the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen who fought for decent working conditions. In the Yager Museum you can see some interesting books, including a small display devoted to James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans.
