Central New York phone service began in 1879, although they did not have a structure erected for the exclusive use of a telephone company until this building. This sophisticated adaptation of Italian Early Renaissance facade was designed by Henry Wilkenson. Originally, the fifth floor was occupied by the telephone operators and switchboards. A bicycle storage room was provided for employees in the southeast corner of the building. In 1906, the Telephone Co. moved because of increased space demands. Since then the building has housed the extensive collection of the Onondaga Historical Association. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
