The Veeders of Montgomery County


Join the staff and community of the Saint Kateri Tekakwitha National Shrine & Historic Site for a presentation on the site’s Revolutionary-era history. The Veeder family, whose members included Colonel Volkert Veeder and state legislators Johannes Veeder and Simon Veeder, owned the land that the Shrine stands on for much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Visit the 1782 Veeder farmhouse and barn, hear about our continuing work restoring the Early Republic-era family graveyard, and see a replica of the Tryon County Liberty Pole, erected to demonstrate the area’s Patriot loyalties. While you're on the grounds, you can also visit the National Register Historic Site of the Caughnawaga excavation, the only fully excavated Iroquois/Haudenosaunee village in the world, as well as our Native American Museum.
