People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Syracuse, New York, USA? 

Syracuse, Onondaga, New York, USA
The story of Syracuse is intimately intertwined with the development of industry and commerce. While Syracuse has often been identified as “The City That Salt Built,” it was never totally reliant on the salt industry for its economic survival. The Canal, and later the railroads, established the city as an important transportation hub and this, in turn, attracted a diverse number of manufacturing and commercial concerns. This diversity enabled the city to adjust to the gradual decline of the salt industry during the second half of the nineteenth century. Remnants of the salt industry can still be found at the Geddes Salt Pump site.www.syracuse.ny.us/ historicSyracuse.asp
