Voters decide fate of Seneca Elementary School building

SALAMANCA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Voters in Salamanca went to the polls Tuesday and approved the sale of the former Seneca Elementary School building to the Seneca Nation of Indians.

The Center Street facility has been closed since last year when the district closed the building and moved classes to other campuses. The Senecas will buy the building for $950,000 and use it to house education administrative office and museum collections as well as a business center.

The building sits on nearly 10 acres of land, which could be turned into a garden and ball field. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
