Town of Manlius Clerk Archival Records Listing

The Town of Manlius was officially created on March 5, 1794 by the New York State Legislature. It was one of the original 11 towns in Onondaga County that stretched in those days from the Madison/Chenango county line west to Geneva and from Lake Ontario to the southern tip of Seneca Lake, four times the present size of Onondaga County. The names of Manlius residents were the first on the petition to create the new county and Manlius residents were among the earliest county officials elected.
