The Empress

“Of all the villages of Onondaga, Skaneateles is the Empress. Beautifully and delightfully situated, with an excellent view of one of the prettiest lakes in the world, and showing a landscape upon either border as lovely as heart could wish, with fine streets, excellent walks, shady yards, and elegant dwellings, no wonder it is the home of the opulent, the favorite of tourists, the haunt of. the man of leisure, and an earthly paradise to all visitors.”

— The Syracuse Standard, 1865
