History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Cicero was one of the townships of the former Central New York Military Tract, land reserved for soldiers of the American Revolution.

The Town of Cicero was formed in 1790 as a Township in the Military Tract, but was part of the Town of Lysander when Onondaga County was formed in 1794 and was separated from Lysander in 1807. The first settler to arrive was John Leach, who established a tavern at Cody's Corners.

In 1827 the town was split approximately in half, with the western portion of Cicero becoming the Town of Clay.

The Stone Arabia School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
