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.
