Syracuse Chilled Plow Company specialized in the manufacture of cast iron agricultural plows that were "chilled' in a sand mold. At the company's manufacturing peak in the early 20th century, workers made more than 100,000 plows each year, selling them to many countries around the world. The company slogan was, "The sun never sets on a Syracuse Chilled Plow."
Now, through a loan agreement with the Onondaga Historical Association Museum, an actual Syracuse Chilled Plow will return to its former place of origin, displayed atop a pedestal in the center section of Delavan Art Gallery from May 7 - June 13. The plow display shares the May 7 opening with the gallery's other two new exhibitions: the feature exhibit, Fusion and Wild Card show, Paintings by Connie Carroll.
