The Onondaga Historical Association is putting the finishing touches on an all new exhibit highlighting Salina Street and they need the public’s help.
OHA Curator of History, Robert Searing says their attempting to relive Salina Street’s ‘Glory Days’ by debuting the new exhibit using that very name. The exhibit will feature photographs and artifacts to highlight the post war era when the street was booming with clothing shops, jewelry shops, and many more stores.
During the holidays the street would be lined with decorations and garlands, much like you see in New York City.
The OHA is calling for the public’s help in a nostalgic way. If you have any furs, clothing and furniture bought from one of the old stores on Salina Street, or any other memorabilia, you can have it shown at the event as part of the local history.
“There’s a treasure trove of items out there” Robert said.
“Strolling Down Salina Street” opens Wednesday November 19th at the OHA Museum which is located at 321 Montgomery Street in Syracuse. If you have any artifacts or photographs relating to Salina Street, please call (315) 428-1864.
