SENECA FALLS The Cayuga Indian Nation of New York has purchased another parcel.

On June 26, the Nation acquired the deed to a 0.53-acre parcel at 2947 E. Bayard Street Extension from sellers Michael L. and Kelly S. Shores. The property is assessed at $88,000 and the tribe bought it for $117,000.

The sale was the first for the Cayugas since Feb. 22. The Nation has purchased 56 parcels in Seneca Falls totaling just over 1,003 acres. They also own three parcels in the town of Varick totaling 145.8 acres and 243 acres of land in Cayuga County.

The Nation pays property taxes when the deeds are transferred but does not pay taxes once it acquires the property. It currently has more than $606,000 in unpaid property taxes in Seneca County going back to 2008. The latest purchase is the 13th parcel on East Bayard Street Extension bought by the Cayugas since March 2008. The tribe has paid nearly $8.7 million for land assessed at 5.9 million.
