Silverhammers member Andy Fioramonti, of Onondaga Hill, gives the Manlius gazebo, located on the corner of Academy Street and East Seneca Turnpike, a fresh coat of paint on July 29. The Silverhammers, Spade and Trowel Club and Manlius Deputy Mayor Janice Abdo-Rott have been planning the gazebo renovations since April.

In the 1880s, when Manlius was compiled of dirt roads, a small gazebo was built at the corner of Academy Street and East Seneca Turnpike. The gazebo remained standing for more than 130 years, but eventually needed many repairs. This summer, the tattered, worn-down gazebo has been rebuilt to look similar to the old one, but stronger and more stable.
