CedarWaxwing.smKnown locally for many years as UC Point, Salt Point is leased by Lansing from New York. Local officials, Friends of Salt Point, Cayuga Bird Club, and other volunteers are currently restoring the natural beauty of this scenic peninsula by adding walking trails, native trees and shrubs, and vital wildlife habitat.

From 1892 until 1962, the International Salt Company operated a large plant here to produce fine table salt and other salt products. The plant employed many Lansing residents and attracted new immigrants. Read our History of SP.Historic.SaltPlant.smallSalt Point to learn more about the area's fascinating past.
