~ Salt Museum Liverpool NY at Onondaga Lake Park ~

Discover the industry that created the City of Syracuse and supplied the entire nation with salt! Explore the site of an original boiling iblock where brine (salt water) was turned into what was then considered one of the country's most precious commodities. See the actual kettles, wooden barrels and other equipment that were used in this fascinating process which came to an end in the 1920's.

Commercial salt production from brine wells began in the Finger Lakes on the shore of Onondaga Lake in Syracuse when it became difficult to obtain salt from abroad during the War of 1812 with England. The refining of salt was Syracuse's largest industry at the time, and it supplied salt to much of the country.
