“History of Utica; The site of Utica, called in the Oneida tongue “Yah-nun-da-da-sis” meaning “around the hill” is a part of a track of 22,000 acres which George Second, King of great Britain, granded in royal letters patent in 1734 to a number of individuals, but in reality to the governor of the Province, William Cosby.”

“On April 3, 1798, Old Fort Schuyler was incorporated as a village. The inhabitants had met at Bagg’s Tavern earlier in the year to discuss the incorporation and to select a name for the village. There was much debate on subject, some wishing to retain the name of Old Fort Schuyler while others suggested such names as Scanandoah, Washington and Kent. As no decision could be reached, selection of a name was left to chance. They decided to settle it by allowing each to write the name of their choice and put it in a hat; the first name drawn out to be adopted. This proved to be Utica, choice of classical scholar citizen Erastus Clark.” 

“The agreement was adhered to and the bill of incorporation bone the name of Utica, the Port of ancient Carthage. In that year the village contained fifty houses. Talcott Camp was elected the first village president.”

The city declined in the first century BC and was finally destroyed by Arabs c. AD 700. Phoenician city of Utica was located in present day Tunisia. Utica translated as “Old Town” but it contrasts with that of Carthage which translates as “New Town”.”
