History

Hiawatha Lodge was never a hotel or inn. Originally built about 1830 by Manning Waterhouse, an area pioneer from Massachusetts and a farmer, it was home to four generations of the Waterhouse family. Native Americans hunted along trails that ran by the house and at days end they would camp on the north side of the house for the night.

In 1917 the property was acquired by Joseph Griffin, a prominent Syracuse civic and business leader and gentleman farmer who had grown up in the Clay/Liverpool area near the house. He restored it and gave it the name, "Hiawatha Lodge". He had great interest and respect for Native Americans due to a boyhood friendship which began in 1870. He was rescued from Little York Lake, south of Syracuse, by a ten year old Indian boy who later became Chief Charles Green of the Deer Clan of the Onondagas. He was adopted into the Onondaga Nation in 1908 and named Scho-nah-na-da meaning Hiawatha the Second. Thus the name.

Griffin was instrumental in building the Hotel Syracuse, the Onondaga Lake parkway and numerous parks, as well as insuring Syracuse would be the permanent home of the New York State Fair. His father-in-law built most of the Erie Canal bridges from Albany to Buffalo. The home remained in the Griffin family after his death in 1937 until about 1963. There have been two owners since then, each keeping the house in excellent condition and offering a warm welcome.
