Cayuga Nation demolishes mobile home in Seneca Falls

The Cayuga Nation has demolished another structure in Seneca County, according to a Wednesday, September 7 press release.

Nation representatives say the mobile home was located on Nation-owned property and abandoned.


“Pursuant to a demolition order from The Town of Seneca Falls Zoning Office and the Tribal Zoning Office, the Cayuga Nation today completed the demolition of an abandoned mobile home on Nation-owned property,” said the release.

The demolished structure was located at 3004 Cosad Road in Seneca Falls.

The Nation says the structure was “long vacant” and purchased by the Nation in 2011.

The property has “since been destroyed by a small extremist group and their criminal allies,” claims the release.

Upon inspection, continues the release, Cayuga Nation Police found “unfinished rooms with exposed floorboards, dilapidated furniture and dead animals, including a butchered deer carcass in one of the bedrooms.”

Several protesters were reportedly on the scene. Nation representatives say a local man attempted to block construction equipment from continuing the demolition.

“The Cayuga Nation does not tolerate extremist criminal activity and continues to remove overrun buildings to create a safer community for Nation citizens and their neighbors,” concludes the release.

This is the latest demolition carried out by the Cayuga Nation under its federal representative Clint Halftown.

In early August of this year, the Nation demolished structures on County Road 124 in Varick and State Route 89 in Seneca Falls.
