Tobacco farming, Barge Canal lock construction, boatbuilding, gas wells, the Underground Railroad. These are just many of the moments that have defined history in the Greater Baldwinsville area.
Through over 200 vintage photographs, local author Sue Ellen McManus takes readers on a nostalgic journey down memory lane during Baldwinsville’s yesteryears.
McManus hopes the book will “honor the traditions and people of Baldwinsville in a way that brings enjoyment to its readers and sparks some to also pick up the historian’s torch.”
Highlights of Greater Baldwinsville:
• Features never before seen vintage photographs from both public and private collections
• Includes snapshots of the hamlets of the Towns of Lysander and Van Buren along with an 1874 map that shows their locations
• Provides a series of construction and operating images that describe the short-lived and short route Syracuse and Baldwinsville Railroad
• Shows the dominance of the Seneca Rive through a panoramic aerial view capturing it coursing through the village and towns
