History[edit]

Marshall Street is believed to be named for Louis B. Marshall (1856–1929), a Syracuse native and corporate and constitutional lawyer, who also helped found the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. The 100 block of Marshall Street received the honorary name Louis Marshall Way in 2006. Historians are unsure if the street originally honored Louis Marshall, who only reached prominence after the turn of the twentieth century.[1][2][3] The Marshall Square Mall is also located adjacent to Marshall Street.[4][5] The area is promoted by the Crouse-Marshall Business Association. Marshall Street has been renovated many times over the years.[6][7]
