About the Bluff Point Ruins

Bluff Point Ruins

Of all the Native American sites found in Yates county the “Bluff Point Ruins” are the most mysterious. Two surveyors Berlin H. Wright and Samuel H. Wright, a father and son, discovered this site. Both men accomplished many remarkable things during their lives. Their reputations as highly educated, thoughtful men gives credence to their account of the strange arrangements of stones found on the top of the hill high above the shores of Keuka Lake. Samuel H. Wright wrote an extensive account of the plants and animals found in this area in William Stork’s book A Student’s Handbook of Yates County. Berlin wrote a very accurate description of the geology of the county in the same book.
