Title: The Great Genesee Road














“This ancient Native American Trail served as the main east-west
route through Central NY. In 1794, work began to expand the
route from Fort Schuyler and the Mohawk River to the Genesee
River in western NY creating “The Great Genesee Road.” In 1800, the
Seneca Road Company began a 10-year project to improve the
existing road. This road became known as “The Seneca
Turnpike” and was instrumental to the growth of Marcellus and
other villages and towns along its route.
