Pompey Historical Society
The Township of Pompey, named for the outstanding Roman general and statesman, was established by the Commissioners of the Land Office in New York City on July 3, 1790.
In 1794, Onondaga County was formed and the four founding towns included Lysander, Manlius, Marcellus, and Pompey.
Visit the Pompey Historical Society website and learn more about our history and lore. Then attend a meeting or exhibit, read a publication, or participate in an educational program.
Restored in 2012, the Pompey one-room schoolhouse built circa 1857, is on the campus of the Pompey Historical Society (located at the corner of U.S. Route 20 and Pompey Center Road).
