Overview
Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, Massena emerged from its quiet beginnings to become the region's center for tourism, commerce, and industry. With vintage photographs, Massena documents the people, places, and events that shaped this northernmost New York State town. Shown are early sightseers and seekers of health from the mineral springs; the Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa), which arrived before Reynolds Metals; General Motors; and, of course, the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Projects.

Author
The images for Massena come from the archives of the Massena Museum. Massena native Theresa S. Sharp, town and village historian, is in her sixteenth year at the museum. David E. Martin, who is also the author of Ogdensburg, is a longtime collector of northern New York images. He serves the St. Lawrence County Historical Society and museums throughout the area, using his photographic skills to reproduce long-lost positive images from glass-plate negatives and to preserve other historical images.
