We were in Syracuse for the State Fair on Saturday, checked out some other things including this museum on Sunday. WOW! The staff is really friendly and informative, the displays are really interesting and it's an amazing story! 1 thing to keep in mind - when you go in the museum, passing the gift shop, follow the displays to the left. Don't go down hallway on the right.... you'll get there at the end. Otherwise, you are doing the museum backwards in time : )

We recently attended a Ghost Walk in Liverpool sponsored by the OHA, which made us curious about what else the place had to offer, so we stopped by to visit. The Ghost Walk was so much fun: interesting characters from Liverpool History, like Mayor Heid, and a willow basket maker, told us their stories and wove interesting facts into well-performed (and often funny) first person histories. We walked from location to location led by a tour guide.

Reminiscent of European town halls, Syracuse City Hall is a fortress-like building constructed of Onondaga limestone. Some believe the primary inspiration for this buidling was Albany's City Hall, designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and completed just a few years earlier. Richardsonian Romanesque was a popular style for city halls in this era and architect Charles Colton employed all the usual features turrets, a hipped roof with steeply pitched dormers.
