Ganondagan State Historic Site

Details

An official Path Through History Site! Ganondagan State Historic Site in Victor, NY stands at the location of what was one of the largest, most vital 17th-century Seneca towns until its destruction in 1687. Today, it is a destination where visitors can explore five centuries of art, culture, and history through interactive and multi-media exhibits at the Seneca Art & Culture Center, peruse the one-of-a-kind artisan items at its gift shop, tour a full-sized replica of a 17th-century bark longhouse, and enjoy self-guided tours through marked trails on the site’s 500+ acres. Ganondagan also acts as a resource for students and educators about the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy and its message of peace. Friends of Ganondagan—the non-profit organization that supports the work of the Historic Site—hosts workshops, lectures, performances, and programs reflecting the vibrancy of the living culture and promoting a sustainable future. Major annual events include the Native American Winter Games in February, Native American Dance & Music Festival in July, Living History event in September, and the annual Canandaigua Treaty Day in November. Visitors are welcome year-round to explore the 17,300 square foot Seneca Art & Culture Center and can tour the site's full-size replica of a Seneca Bark Longhouse and walk miles of self-guided, marked trails from May 1-October 31.
