The Genessee River

Location:   Western New York State
Year:   Before The Last Ice Age

The Genessee River is one of the few rivers in the world that runs from south to north. 

During the period of Iroquois hegemony, the Genessee River marked the western boundary of the Seneca Nation.

Rising in Pennsylvania, the Genessee enters New York State near Wellsville and discharges into Lake Ontario in Rochester. 

The river has several falls. It has always been an important local source of hydroelectric power.
