Fun Fact about Syracuse & Onondaga County …. did you know …..

… that the Great New York State Fair started in Syracuse. New York’s very first fair (September 29-30, 1841) was located in a square bounded today by North Salina, Division, Townsend & Ash Streets with the old Onondaga County Court House serving as an exhibit hall. It was deemed a tremendous success & attracted between 10,000 & 15,000 spectators many traveling by railroad. The NYS Legislature budgeted $8,000 for the “promotion of agriculture & household manufactures in the state” through the annual fair.

Fun Fact about Syracuse/Onondaga County …. did you know …..

……that jazz great Mark Murphy was born in Syracuse in 1932 and grew up in Central New York as part of a musical family. He developed his own jazz style with scatting and improvisations on the poetry of Jack Kerouac and others using songs that were not always part of the standard jazz repertory.
