White deer tours start this month at former Army Depot

Regional News

Dennis Money loves what he can see on the large swath of land surrounding the Seneca Army Depot.

“You’re going to have a far better chance of seeing a white deer here than any other place in the world,” Money said.

As President of Seneca White Deer, Inc., Money and a local businessman helped save the land and the deer.

More recently they have set up a welcome center and will start tours of the new building and property around it. 

“We’re going to have various exhibits, stating the various history of the depot for the last 70 years,” Money said.

The depot’s history goes well beyond wildlife.

“Now it’s a conservation park but once it housed mass destruction weapons,” said Money. “You have 519 empty ammunition bunkers, 26 personal bomb shelters, 8 million square feet of warehouse space, a private cemetery with colonial soldiers buried in it.”

Soon you’ll be able to see all this on one tour.

The money raised will be used to protect the land and the deer.

The welcome center and the tours will be starting November 16 and they will be operating year round.

Guided tours will take place aboard 25-passenger buses on Thursday through Sunday at the John and Josephine Ingle Welcome Center on Route 96A, located about 10 miles south of Geneva.
