Buffalo Creek Squash is from the Buffalo creek Iroquois reservation near Erie County in New York and is land set aside for the Seneca people of that region. The modern Buffalo Creek Reservation consists of a nine-acre plot of land, which was part of the original reservation. In 1835 Mr. ? got seeds from the Seneca and took it to Boston. People loved the taste and texture and it was renamed the Boston marrow squash.  In 1851 many of the Seneca left Buffalo Creek for Onondaga, Alegani, Tonowanda, Katerokes and Canada as there was no more place for them in the reservation.  However the seed has returned to the community and is now being grown by many people now.
