There are brochures printed by the visitor bureau advertising the Ste. Marie Among the Iroquois. Also, when you drive past the attraction, there are no signs stating it is closed. It was disappointing to go out of our way to see this only to find it was not open and nothing anywhere said it was closed.

This is a recently accurately rebuilt French Fort bearing the name in English that the French gave to the fort in an effort to secure their "claims" on this part of North America and to dominate the fur trade. Take a trip back in history and learn how the wily French subverted the loyalties of the "Iroquois" or Haudenosaunee Indian... More

Went here with my kids. For the price to get in you would expect more than what is there. Afterwards I found out that it was not even the original fort. The original fort was at a different location in Liverpool. Don't waste your time or money.

Offers a more "connected" or intimate view of local history from before teh arrival of whites in the area through the early industrial development. Some of the displays invite you to feel a little more like part of the story than many more sterile retelllings or displays in some small museums.

For most of the year, this recreation of a French mission opposite the shore of Onondaga Lake is a center for learning about the Iroquois tribe and the missionaries who came to work with them in the 1650's. During the Christmas season, the center showcases an exhibit of Christmas trees and Santa "dolls" from various parts of the world. The... More
