Eaton Site is a historic archeological site located at West Seneca in Erie County, New York. It contains a record of small, intermittently occupied campsites from the Early Archaic (c. 8000 BCE) though the Late Woodland (c. 1200 CE) periods and an Iroquoian village dating to around 1550 CE. The site also contains materials from the early 19th century, when it was part of the Buffalo Creek Reservation, and traces of late 19th and 20th century materials. The land was sold in 1842 and the site was used as farmland until the early 1950s.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
