THIS county abounds in ancient monuments; but no opportunity was afforded of examining them during the progress of the investigations here recorded. It is probable they are but a continuation of the series extending through Erie county, (which adjoins Chautauque on the northeast,) and it is not likely they present any new features.
One of the most remarkable occupies an eminence in Sheridan township, four miles east of Fredonia, on the banks of Beaver Creek. It corresponds in all respects with the hill-works already described. Another of like character occurs in the southern part of the same township.
