The Broas are one of the first Endicott pioneer families, and they're buried here. The graves are very old, but very well taken care of.
The area between the Binghamton Country Club and Traditions at the Glen used to belong to some organization--there are still old signs saying the area is open to members only--that is since long gone. The woods are a maze of poorly maintained trails that are difficult to negotiate. From Country Club Road, we took Robinson Hill Road, pulled over at the side of the road, hopped the guardrail, and began hiking through the thorns. Eventually, we hit a trail whose switchbacks were so wide that we just pushed through straight downhill, crossing it several times before deciding to stay on it. Found lots of weird stuff on the way.
We found a tiny Susquehanna tributary right by the Broas cemetery. A fun place to explore, or so I thought. The way we approached was by turning off of County Route 33 just south of the intersection with County Route 49 onto Pheasant Lane, parking at the bend in the road and taking the walkway down to the river. We didn't cross the bridge to the high school property.
