Onondaga History

On Sunday, May 15, long time resident, Ray Simpson, was our guest speaker for a special event to celebrate Onondaga History. He had some wonderful stories to tell about the early days in our community.

Did you know that there used to be a whiskey distillery here? And hotels? Onondaga pine trees were shipped all the way to Britain. During years of war rationing, local maple syrup was a treasured source of sugar.

This free event was well attended. Cake and coffee was served. Memories were shared.  Many thanks to both Ray Simpson and Ruth Lefler for opening a window to Onondaga’s past!
