A historic $370 million investment

In 2023, the Oneida Indian Nation announced a $370 million capital investment in the evolution of Turning Stone Resort Casino, the largest in the resort’s history. Operating under the new name of Turning Stone Enterprises (formerly Oneida Nation Enterprises), the two-year transformation will include a new conference center, outdoor event spaces, hotel and more.

The evolution continues the Oneida Indian Nation’s commitment to investment in the region, Turning Stone Enterprises, and team members with a $616 million one-time economic impact, the creation of 3,600 one-time jobs, and $22.1 million in state and local tax revenues.
