Syracuse New York Salt Museum 
Timbers from an actual 19th century salt warehouse were used to build this museum, which seeks to explain how and why Syracuse got the nickname “The Salt City.” In the mid-1800s, “boiling blocks” were built to boil salt water and evaporate the brine, leaving the salt behind. Syracuse became a national leader in the production of this precious commodity. Visitors can study wooden barrels, kettles, a salt workers “neighborhood” and a full-scale reproduction boiling block.
