This chapter analyzes documentary references to Seneca sites occupied from 1709 to 1754 and prior archaeological work carried out at Townley-Read. After the destruction wrought by the 1687 Denonville invasion, the Senecas moved eastward to the area between the Seneca and Canandaigua lakes. The two villages initially settled in this area—Snyder-McClure and White Springs—occupied hilltop locations and were probably nucleated settlements. When Snyder-McClure and White Springs were abandoned, major changes in the Seneca settlement preferences took place. The newly established settlement at the north end of Seneca Lake was the first spatially segmented community in the Seneca village sequence. This was noted by nineteenth-century local historian George S. Conover, who hypothesized that the White Springs Senecas moved from their nucleated village to resettle in a complex of at least six contemporaneous “neighborhoods” along an 8 km-long section of Burrell Creek. This group of sites—which includes the Townley-Read, Brother, Rippey, Rupert, Zindall-Wheadon, and Hazlet sites—is referred to as the New Ganechstage Site Complex.
