A production currently playing at Syracuse Stage, based upon a true historical event that occurred in the city: https://syracusestage.org/showinfo.php?id=83

The Freedom Trail in Syracuse and Onondaga County, NY

This is the play writer: Kyle Bass | Faculty & Staff | Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts

https://www.syracuse.com/entertainme...use_stage.html

Mr. Bass grew up in Frankfort, a small/rural community in western Herkimer County right next to Utica’s East Side and attended Frankfort-Schuyler schools. In an interview on a radio station this morning, he stated that his family came to CNY centuries ago from VA(Warrenton) and CT(this side came to CNY in the 1770’s if I’m not mistaken).

This is his mother, who was born and raised in Bridgewater, a small/rural community south of Utica in southern Oneida County(currently in the Mount Markham SD): Local Entrepreneur, Juanita Bass is Honored as Leader
Juanita's Soul Classics - Biography

She is the daughter of the third black mayor/executive of a municipality in NY State history when became the mayor of the village of Bridgewater in 1974 and he was born in Unadilla Forks(also in the Mount Markham SD): http://romesentinel.com/news?newsid=20111005-142130

https://news.google.com/newspapers?n...,4549338&hl=en

https://books.google.com/books?id=bd...r%20ny&f=false

If people are wondering, this man that was elected mayor of the village of Port Byron in Cayuga County in 1971 is the state’s second mayor/executive of a municipality in the state: https://auburnpub.com/lifestyles/wha...69f84be22.html

The first mayor/executive(or in his case “president”) of a municipality in NY State occurred in the village of Cleveland in Oswego County(Central Square SD) in 1878: https://newyorkhistoryblog.org/2018/...merican-mayor/

Edward Sherman b. 10 Jun 1807 Saratoga, Saratoga, New York d. Abt. 1907: Northshore Roots

Mr. Sherman was born in Saratoga County in 20 years before slavery ended in NY State. He is also to my knowledge the 3rd black mayor in US history.

So, this illustrates a long time history that includes small town/rural areas.

Business HOF reference from Buffalo: https://www.bizjournals.com/buffalo/...oles-1929.html

The new honorees will be inducted at a Nov. 1 ceremony at the Buffalo History Museum. Profiles of all seven are being posted this week on Business First’s website.

The total membership of the Business Hall of Fame is now 22, including the 15 inaugural honorees who were inducted in November 2017. The museum hosts the Western New York Business Hall of Fame as a permanent exhibit.

Founding sponsors of the Hall of Fame are Evans Bank, Freed Maxick CPAs, Hodgson Russ LLP, Walsh Duffield Cos. Inc., the Buffalo History Museum and Buffalo Business First.
