Historic New York
Situated on the edge of the fruitful lake plain beside Onondaga Lake, Syracuse is near the geographical center of New York State. Serving a wide area, her industries which began with the salt works have been many and varied: chinaware, alloy steel, automobiles and automotive gears, air-conditioning and typewriters, chemicals and electronics -- these reflected the industrial growth of America.
Erected by Education Department, State of New York, & the NYS Thruway Authority.
