Maple View

Union Square

  Even before it had a name, it must have gained considerable importance as a crossroads in view of the travel on its two highways.  In 1836 it could boast of 17 dwellings.                        

Situated at the crossing of two important highways, the Syracuse and Watertown, now Route 11, and the Oswego-Rome, now number 104, Union Square the present Maple View, belonged to Richland, the 21st town of Scriba's Patent, until 1817 when it was transferred with the surrounding triangle to Mexico.
