Photo of Bassett Grove Cemetery
The Bassett Grove Ceremonial Grounds have been in use by the Seneca-Cayuga people since 1832. It is here that some of their most important religious ceremonies take place each year. The oldest portion of the site includes the ceremonial grounds, demarcated by a limestone rock boundary built in 1835. There is also a small cemetery that contains several pre-1900 wooden markers and several more recent stone markers. More recent additions include a limestone cook house built in 1932, and a long-house built in 1966 (replaces an original long-house built in 1932) that is used for various ceremonies. Listed in National register 7/20/1983.
