Is the Seneca Nation going to be building a new casino in Erie County? What is happening with all the land that the Seneca Nation bought in Western New York?

The Seneca Nation is in the process of purchasing a good amount of land in Erie County. Many people on social media thought and hoped that there would be a new casino coming to Western New York.

That is not the case. The 70+ acres of land that is bought will be used for residential housing.

The Seneca Nation bought 74.4 acres along Bush Road for $396,000 from Thomas Huff, Valerie John, Jean Huff, Betty Nephew and David Owl, according to Sept. 2 filings in the Erie County Clerk’s office. The land will be developed into single family homes of varying sizes for Seneca Nation members, similar to projects in southern Erie County and on its Allegany and Cattaraugus territories", according to Buffalo Business First.
