Population 1800

The town of Syracuse began as a water tank and a railroad side track in 1873. By 1888 it had a population of 1,300. It lies along the Arkansas River making it one of the most productive areas for wheat, hay, corn, and milo. The huge elevators and shiny railroad tracks reveal the major source of our prosperity.
