In Chery Valley up in the hills of Allegany there are some older camps and foundations I saw while fourwheeling. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the history of those or the valley.

Tell me more... in the area people say much more than that. Once someone told me there was only one way in and one way out. Then recently while visiting I asked about it and someone else mentioned almost the exact same thing.

off topic

Isn't this the area where Timothy McVeigh went for target practice? Tim and a friend owned a camp near Olean.
I remember the FBI going and taking bullets out of a tree at his hunting camp after the Oklahoma bombing. I think it was in the Cherry Valley area. MOO
