History & History Related Items

Binghamton history:

Binghamton was known as the Parlor City because of the fact that it was an extremely classy city; well laid out, clean, and well-kept. This motto is older, but still in limited use. A newer motto is The Carousel Capital of the World. This comes from the fact that the Johnson family of Endicott-Johnson shoe company was very philanthropic. Binghamton and surrounding areas once hosted huge shoe manufacturing plants. The company, under the leadership of the Johnson family, built numerous things for the community. Besides a hospital, golf course, and dance hall (among other things), six carousels were installed in parks in the area, all of which must operate at no cost to riders forever. No area in the world has as many antique carousels as the greater Binghamton area.
