Ganondagan State Historic Site [NY]

Ganondagan is the site of a Native American community that was a flourishing, vibrant center for the Seneca people. Visitor to this site, where thousands of Seneca lived 300 years ago; can tour a full-size replica of a 17th-century Seneca Bark Longhouse; walk miles of self-guided trails; climb the mesa where a huge palisaded granary stored hundreds of thousands of bushels of corn; and learn about the destruction of Ganondagan, Town of Peace, in 1687.

The site offers exhibits, tours, and educational and recreational events.
