It was the Seneca Indians who gave the city of Canandaigua its name, referring to it as "the chosen spot." Today, that legacy was honored with the unveiling of a statue by retired Finger Lakes Community College art professor Wayne Williams.
The seven foot statue, atop a four foot base, depicts a Seneca husband returning from a hunt, his wife and two children. It's at the intersection of Routes 5 & 20 and 332. In his invocation, statue committee member Dick McKie recounted a traditional Seneca saying.
