. It may have been filmed in NC, but it passed well for NYS.
Indeed! One of the many aspects of this great film that snared us was the fact that we lived, once, where the REAL Mohicans lived, and then moved, quite by accident, to where the CELLULOID Mohicans roamed.
We lived, for seven years, in a 1700's era home, with no furnace, but a great old fireplace!!, in near wilderness on East Mountain, which is part of a little hamlet called Wingdale ... directly east of Poughkeepsie on the Connecticut border (near Kent, where the American Indian Institute resides & there is a nice Mohican village set up). We were only a stones throw away from where a historic Mohican settlement once stood, at the confluence of the Ten Mile & Housatonic Rivers. Presently, there is a small reservation near there ... of maybe 5 or 6 families, descendants of the Mohicans.
We have lots of photos, maybe we'll have to put some of them up one of these days soon.
