The only site of its kind in Western NY, Ganondagan is dedicated to preserving and educating about Seneca and Iroquois living history.

Ganondagan State Historic Site (www.ganondagan.org) 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 for visitors to explore the replica of a bark longhouse and hunting lodge and enjoy self-guided tours through trails on the Site’s 600+ acres. It also acts as a resource for students and educators about the Iroquois Confederacy, or Haudenosaunee, and its message of peace.

Every summer, Friends of Ganondagan hosts the Native American Dance & Music Festival, attended by more than 4,000 people from all over the world. Friends also sponsors the annual Canandaigua Treaty Day and presents lectures, workshops, and programs reflecting the vibrancy of a living culture and promoting a sustainable future.
