Few American cities have a history as rich as that of Rome. This central New York crossroads witnessed the siege of Fort Stanwix during the Revolutionary War, the digging of the Erie Canal, and the development of industry that followed. At one time, Rome boasted one-tenth of all copper produced in the country, earning the nickname "the Copper City." Rome richly depicts the people, the great streets-Dominick and James and others-and the structures that were all part of that history.

Raised in Rome, author Portia Vescio worked on this book with the Rome Historical Society, founded in 1936 to research, collect, preserve, and make available the history of Rome. A professional archivist, she compiled more than two hundred images from the society and from community members to create a work that reflects the spirit and personality of the city.
