State Historic Site
Once the site of a vibrant 17th century Seneca settlement,
Ganondagan was attacked and destroyed by the French in 1687. After the battle,
Ganondagan went into a 300-year decline. Today, the state historic site is a vital
link to early Native American culture and history. Its 277 acres include three
walking trails: Our Mother Trail, the Trail of Peace and the Granary Trail, which
detail Seneca history, medicine and oral tradition.
