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

…that originally part of the township of Marcellus, the town of Skaneateles separated and established its independence on February 26, 1830 with the village, at the north end of Skaneateles Lake, incorporating on April 19, 1833. Early agriculture in the area was centered on dairy and grain and by 1850, the village and its surrounding hamlets had begun producing wool cloth, mill machinery, carriages, sleighs, paper, bricks, ironwork and farm implements. The cultivation of the teasel, a natural burr used to raise the nap on woven wool, spurred the economy of Skaneateles until the middle of the twentieth century. Also well known canoes, motor launches and sailboats, including the Lightning and the Comet, were hand crafted in Skaneateles between 1876 and 1945.

Skaneateles_Marcellus Blog

Skaneateles_Marcellus Blog

Ryan Sheridan has started a new community blog to celebrate the villages we live in and share. You can see his first efforts at Skaneateles Marcellus Blog

Ryan says in his opening comments:

“I’ve always wanted to have a true blog…mostly just to be able to say I have one (not because I am a good wordsmith). I guess it’s a lofty goal, but I will strive for people to not only follow the blog on a regular basis, but also use it. And if you knew me, you would know, I do not like to fail.

Heres a few goals and guidelines for the blog:

1-I would like this to be a hub of information for the Marcellus, Skaneateles, and the surrounding areas. A place where people can go to find information on a restaurant, a hiking trail, or even where to find job openings.

2-My hope is that I will be able to get information out on all the restaurants, shops, small businesses, and all other commerce forms in the region, and sort by category to make it extremely easy to use.

3-Mostly, I just hope to be able to write about my experiences in these towns as I realize how much they have shaped my life today. Most likely more therapeutic than interesting. But whatever.

Oh, and the blog is anonymous because it’s not about us, it’s about these towns. Plus, it’s more fun that way.”
