Few American cities have a history as rich as that of Rome. This central New York crossroads witnessed the siege of Fort Stanwix during the Revolutionary War, the digging of the Erie Canal, and the development of industry that followed. At one time, Rome boasted one-tenth of all copper produced in the country, earning the nickname the Copper City. Rome richly depicts the people, the great streets-Dominick and James and others-and the structures that were all part of that history.
