After years of waiting, Seneca White Deer Inc. has announced plans to begin offering their tours of a former army depot mid-month.

Starting November 16th, 25-seat passenger tour buses will depart from a newly built welcome center on Route 96A, Thursdays through Sundays, and enter the 7,000-acre site used for years to store weapons according to Seneca White Deer President Dennis Money. The 90-minute guided tour will feature food plots established to restore deer herd and stop at one of the earth-covered storage igloos that once stockpiled weapons for the US army.

Seneca White Deer Inc., a non-profit corporation that has been working for nearly 20 years to preserve the unique wildlife and military history of the site, have partnered with Deer Haven Park LLC. a company formed by Earl Martin.

“We’ve been working for years to make this happen, and now we have a year-round program of tours that will interest nature lovers, military history buffs and people who just want to know what is behind those fences,” Money said.

The tour fee is $30 for adults, $27 for military and seniors (65 and older), $15 for children (ages 5-17), and free for children under 5.

Reservations for the tours are required and can be made here.
