This adventure will show you some of the historic locations in Rome, New York. For the three near to each other you can park at one place and walk to them. There is available parking at city hall or near the historical society as well as some street parking.
Rome is located in the geographical center of NYS at the foothills of the Adirondacks. There was less than a mile between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek, which respectively reached the Hudson and St. Lawrence Rivers. Due to the strategic location, it was considered one of the most important transportation points for people and goods along the Great Passage during the settling and founding of our nation in the 1700s and 1800s.
In 1758, Fort Stanwix was constructed to protect the Great Carrying Place and it's settlers. Throughout the centuries, Rome has been home to many of our country's pioneering minds and remarkable patriots.
