Town of Cicero Clerk Archival Records Listing

The Town of Cicero was established in the year 1807. It has an approximate size of 49 square miles. The main routes of travel are State Routes 31 and 11. Cicero is located on the N.E. corner of Onondaga County, and the S.W. corner of Oneida Lake. Within the town is the Cicero Swamp State Management Area, home to many different species of animals and reptiles in their natural habitat. This swamp was known as Ka-Nugh-Wa-Ka by the Indians, which meant "where the rabbits run." It was all owned by the Indians until 1944, when it was purchased from them by the State and Federal Government. The oldest house is located north of Route 31 on the east side of Route 11. Today, Cicero is shining full of old culture, as well as sprouting new development, and has many groups and organizations within its township.
