  • Cattaraugus Reservation, Erie County
  • The reservation stretches from Lake Erie inward along Cattaraugus Creek, along either side of NY 438. There is a small cluster of Seneca-owned businesses along US 20 and NY 5 where they cross through the reservation, including a Bingo Hall with a Poker Room and various video slot machines. Interstate 90 crosses through the reservation with the closest exit being in Irving, New York.

    The reservation is mostly rural, with one-family homes along Route 438 interspersed with businesses such as tobacco shops. The reservation is divided into several communities such as Newtown, Bucktown, Pinewoods, Eleven Acres, Ozarks and Indian Hill. At the center of the reservation along Route 438 are the Seneca Nation government offices, Head Start/Daycare Center, Community buildings and the volunteer fire department.
