Native American & Pioneer Sites of Upstate New York- Westward Trails from Albany to Buffalo
Prior to the Revolutionary War, everything west of Albany was wilderness. Safer travel and the promise of land opened this frontier. The interaction between European settlers and Native Americans transformed New York, and the paths they walked still bear the footprints of their experiences, like the shrine to Kateri Tekakwitha in Fonda. Industry and invention flourished along these routes, as peace sparked imagination, allowing for art and the freedom to explore new ideologies, some inspired by Native American culture. The Latter Rain Movement took hold in the heart of the Burned-Over District. Utopian communities and playgrounds for the wealthy appeared and vanished; all that remains of the Oneida Community is its Mansion House. Follow New York's westward trails--the Erie Canal and Routes 5 and 20--that opened the west to the United States, beginning in Albany and moving westward to Buffalo.
Your Print Options:
While this is our lowest priced print, it's still an excellent paper. Inkpress Matte 60 is a acid and lignin free paper. Bright white, and 10 mil. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.
Inkpress Cool Rag 200 is a 100% cotton rag paper. This is an acid-free, 200gsm, 15 mil, with a smooth and bright matte finish. Excellent print quality at an excellent price. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting. This rag paper is better at dark, rich colors than the poster print.
Hahnemuehle Torchon Print
When you need something extra-special, we recommend Hahnemuehle's Torchon. This is a 100% alpha cellulose, 285gsm, textured watercolor paper that is acid-free. This offers superb image quality and is our favorite Hahnemuehle paper. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.
Our maps are also available as cotton-poly blend canvas prints, ready to be gallery stretched.

Additional canvas is left around the image to facilitate gallery stretching at your local frame shop. Available in two sizes.
Wall Tapestry Print
Especially well suited for long horizontal maps, the image is printed to the edge of the paper. Aluminum tension bars are placed on the top and bottom of the print for easy hanging with a clean, modern design. Bars are easily removable. This format comes in an 18", 24", and 36" wide version.
