Benoni Lee’s Law Office

At the corner of State and Genesee Streets, when there was less traffic, the law office of Benoni Lee, built in 1856 and also known as “The Sphinx.” Today, it’s the children’s room of the Skaneateles Library Association, to whom Lee willed his building and property in 1886. My thanks to Gard Lorey for the loan of Pictorial History of Skaneateles (1980) from which this was taken.
