From 1754 to 1763 the French and Indian War played out across Colonial America as the French and British fought for control of the frontier.

Alisa will teach some Seneca language phrases, the importance of Native American contributions, the incredible time period she lived in, including the French and Indian War and the story of Mary’s life, legacy and why she chose to remain a Seneca.

Last admission to the farm at 3 PM.
