Crossroads in Time – An Illustrated History of Syracuse


This should be the official textbook of Syracuse.  This mammoth sized book is amazing with tons of facts about the Salt City.

Hard Cover – Extra Large Book (9.5″ x 12.5″ x 1″ – 208 Pages)

Crossroads in Time: An Illustrated History of Syracuse is the most ambitious publication in the Onondaga Historical Association’s 145-year history. Most of the images, many in color, are taken from OHA’s collection, and several have never been published before. This book provides the engaging story of Syracuse’s expansion and development over the past 200 years. Beyond its chronological narrative, this volume is filled with sidebars detailing unique locations, characters and events, which collectively give Syracuse its distinctive identity.


[Crossroads In Time] provides an informed and informative history of this venerable institution, its mission and accomplishments. Highly recommended and profusely illustrated reading, as well as a welcome addition to American History reference collections, Crossroads In Time could well serve as a template for other regional and state historical societies seeking to record and publish their own histories.”
The Midwest Book Review

“I have just finished reading every word of your Crossroads in Time. . . . It is a really handsome work and your text is literate and intelligent covering an attractive diversity of topics. The high quality and variety of illustrations is outstanding. . . . Congratulations; you have certainly put your stamp on your adopted city and we are all the richer for it.”
Don Meinig, Maxwell Research Professor of Geography, Syracuse University
