The source of the Susquehanna River is in Cooperstown at the outlet of Otsego Lake. Blackbird Bay of Otsego Lake is north of the village.
The village was founded on Otsego Lake within part of the Cooper Patent, which William Cooper – who later became a county judge – purchased in 1785.

He later became a noted American author with The Leatherstocking Tales, a series of historical novels that includes The Last of the Mohicans.
