The Onondaga Creekwalk Historical Tour is an exciting collaborative project of the Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) that provides the opportunity to explore the rich heritage of Syracuse’s urban waterway through entertaining and informative short films. This site can be used as an independent virtual historic tour or it can be used in conjunction with the interpretive signs, stationed along the Creekwalk, that enhance the pedestrian experience on the walkway right where the history happened. The banks and waters of Onondaga Creek and Onondaga Lake have played significant roles in this community’s history from the founding of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, through Colonial times, into the industrial era of the 19th century and on to the present day of lakefront renewal.
Come take this journey with the OHA and experience the fascinating stories of the Onondaga Creekwalk. For more information on local history, visit our website at cnyhistory.org or check us out on Facebook
