Camp Syracuse Collection

Camp Syracuse served as a recruitment and training location for new troops during World War I. Situated on the state fairgrounds and in nearby Lakeland, over 30,000 troops were stationed at Camp Syracuse. This collection contains a number of large black-and-white panorama photographs depicting the various divisions of troops stationed at the camp. Other photographs in the collection document local buildings and people from Solvay and Geddes in the late-Nineteenth and early-Twentieth centuries.
