Tribe Builds Out of State Casino

Seneca, MO – Oklahoma tribe starts construction on Mo. casino

SENECA, Mo. (AP) The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma is breaking ground on an $85 million casino and hotel in southwest Missouri.

The casino complex will be located about a mile from Seneca in Newton County.

The Joplin Globe reports that the tribe already owns and operates Bordertown Casino just across the Oklahoma state line from Seneca.

Tribal Chief Glenna J. Wallace says the project is expected to be completed in 18 months. The complex will include a 100 to 120-room hotel.
