Booksigning Images of America: Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office by Jonathan L. Anderson
November 1, 2-4 pm The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office was formed on March 5, 1794. At that time, its jurisdiction covered what had previously been known as the Military Tract, a 1.75 million–acre stretch of land made available as bounty to soldiers of the Continental army during the Revolutionary War. Since then, the episodes that sketched the history of Onondaga County and Central New York have painted an exciting historical portrait of the sheriff’s office and the role it has played in the development of its communities. Intriguing theaters of the office’s history include promoting peace with the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy, maintaining jails, conducting early legal hangings, suppressing insurrections, policing the storied Erie Canal, and keeping pace of the ever-changing trends in crime, technology, and strategy.
Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office historian Jonathan L. Anderson has collected this set of historical images from the sheriff’s office archives to share with Arcadia’s Images of America series in celebration of the office’s proud professional heritage. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Onondaga Historical Museum, 321 Montgomery Street, Syracuse, NY.
