Skä•noñh – Great Law of Peace Center: Sainte Marie Mission Site Museum

Interpretive text panels in this exhibit introduces the visitor to Sainte Marie de Gannentaha, a Jesuit mission located on the eastern shore of Onondaga Lake from 1656-1658. There is background information describing the series of events that led to the establishment of the mission.

During the spring, summer, and fall months, visitors have the opportunity to visit the re-created mission and explore the blacksmith and carpenter’s shops, sleeping quarters, kitchen, and chapel. In each of these buildings there are interpretive panels that provide information on what the buildings were used for, who worked in them, and what life at the mission was like.
