Living Military Timeline at the Former Seneca Army Depot

Buffalo Soldier reenactors chat with others during a recent event.

Military reenactors representing American soldiers from the Revolutionary War to World War II will gather to create a Living Military Timeline on Saturday, August 17.  This unique event will be held at Seneca White Deer’s John and Josephine Ingle Welcome Center located at 5479 Rt. 96A in Romulus.  The event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. is free and open to the public.

The reenactors have authentic uniforms, tents, camp equipment, flags, weapons and other artifacts.  Visitors are encouraged to take photos and talk with the participants about the military history they represent.

Seneca White Deer President Dennis Money said, “This is a great new project for us.  We’ve been doing White Deer Tours of the former Seneca Army Depot for a year and a half now, and the military history of the site is as popular as the famous white deer.  We’re really excited to host this event.”

Seneca White Deer conducts 90-minute, narrated bus tours of the former Seneca Army Depot several times a day, Wednesday through Sunday. Visitors can find detailed tour schedules and make reservations online at, or by calling 315-759-8220.
