The History of Victor, NY
Just before the native dance and music Festival that was held at Ganondagan on the 25th and 26th of July, I took a trip back in time. I visited the longhouse. With my camera in hand, I took a series of panoramic shots at the front and inside of the longhouse.

In the 1600’s the Iroquois confederacy held the power in this neck of the woods. In fact, here in Victor, the Seneca Nation had their main community on Fort Hill at what is now the Ganondagan State Historical site just south of the town of Victor and located at the intersection of Boughton Hill Road and Rt. 444.
