The Turning Stone Resort Casino opened 25 years ago today. Located in Upstate New York, the casino resort is owned by the Oneida Indian Nation. It is the flagship casino resort for the tribe.
A celebration was held in honor of the anniversary in the Showroom. The room consisted of officials from Central New York and Oneida County. Also, hundreds of employees. Some of which have been with the casino resort since the opening 25 years ago.
A cake was made by the pastry chefs at the resort. It was designed as a replica of the Turning Stone Resort Casino property. It will be on display for guests to see in The Winter Garden at Turning Stone.
In the 1980's the tribe opened a bingo hall. In the 1990's the idea of expanded the bingo parlor into a casino began putting plans together. Over time, they faced lawsuits and other hurtles in their project. The tribe continued to push forward and eventually were able to grow their enterprise into the large casino resort that it is today.
In 1993 the original casino building was opened. Located on 400 acres in Verona. Two years later slot machines were added. Also, the bingo parlor was moved to a new location on Patrick Road. In 2002, the building was renovated that enlarged the gaming floor to its current layout.
The Turning Stone Casino Resort has also been a source for needed employment for the area. In 1995 Griffiss Air Force Base closed. Many people were laid off. The casino resort offered employment opportunities for many of those people.
Throughout the summer months, special events will be held to continue the casino resort's 25th anniversary. It is expected that this fall there will be an announcement regarding the future expansion of the casino.Back
