From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Authorized by the New York State Legislature in 1794, the highway extending westward from Fort Schuyler (Utica, New York) was intended to give access to the New Military Tract. It generally followed an old Iroquois trail, extending through Oneida, Manlius, Onondaga Valley (south of modern Syracuse), Skaneateles, Auburn, Seneca Falls, and Geneva, ending at Canandaigua.

Although serving heavy traffic, the project remained incomplete until the state authorized a company of private investors to finish uncompleted sections. The route thereafter was called the Seneca Turnpike.

Genesse Road can also be called Nashville Road. At least what most sites say.
