UTICA — Utica shoes! Who knew?

Many people don’t realize Utica once had a thriving shoe manufacturing industry, producing as many as two thousand pairs of shoes a day.

The Oneida County History Center is hosting a walking tour at 10:30 a.m. and noon Saturday, July 9, beginning at the History Center table at The Oneida County Market located inside the REA Wing at Union Station on Main Street.

Learn about the rise and fall of Utica’s Historic Shoe District. The tour features seven stops and highlights the major manufacturers of shoes in Utica and ends at the Hurd Building, the last remaining remnant of Utica’s now-vanished shoe industry.
