The Bus Trip is a sell-out but we are taking a waiting list. Please call us at (716) 434-7433.
The History Center’s Spring Bus Trip will travel to the historic Seneca site of Ganondagan in Victor, Saturday, June 4. Ganondagan is the site of a Native-American community that was a flourishing, vibrant settlement for the Seneca people. Thousands of Seneca lived at Ganondagan 300 years ago.
You’ll see a full-size replica of a 17th-century bark longhouse and the mesa where a gigantic granary stored enormous quantities of corn. You’ll also learn about the destruction of Ganondagan, “Town of Peace,” in 1687.
We’ll also visit the site’s new Seneca Art and Culture Center, which tells the story of more than 2,000 years of Seneca and Haudenosaunee contributions to art, culture and society.
The all-day motorcoach journey will stop for lunch at the Holloway Inn in East Bloomfield. The Holloway Inn got its start as an 1808 wayside tavern. Over the years, it has become the classic 19th-century colonial inn, featuring fine food and hospitality, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in its graceful and friendly atmosphere.
We’ll complete our trip with a stop at Oliver’s Candies in Batavia. In business since 1932, Oliver’s has a long tradition of quality and excellence, using original family recipes for making a wide variety of candies.
