Located in Oswego County in the central part of New York State, the town of Hastings was established in 1825. Indian trails marked the area long before the first plank road in the United States-from Syracuse north to Central Square, the main village in Hastings-was completed in July 1846. With more than two hundred photographs, Hastings shows the people who shaped the town, such as Robert Elliott, who once owned much of the village; the eel weirs, pots, and smokehouse; and the landmark buildings at Caughdenoy, such as the Bates-Elliot Block, Courbats Lumber Mill, and the Dixon House hotel.
