Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …. did you know …..

… in December of 1892, the pneumatic automobile tire was patented in Syracuse, NY by Alexander Brown & George Stillman. Before the pneumatic tire, wheels were often made of solid rubber. This made travel a bumpy experience since streets in 1892 were made of dirt, brick, planks or cobblestone. Some horse-drawn carriages had been made with inflatable tires, but Brown and Stillman received the first patent for pneumatic automobile tires. Brown was the co-founder of Brown-Lipe-Chapin Company, a firm that was absorbed by General Motors. His former home (located at 726 W. Onondaga St.) is on the National Register of Historic Places.
