It is worth mentioning that King & Benton with their partner Guswhenta Holdings made a historical move when it purchased 50 acres of land within the Hadenosaunee traditional territory and along the Haldimand Tract and then repatriated back to the Six Nations of the Grand River community trustees in early 2015.
